Google Video Said To Have User Contributed Clips Up By Summer

Google readying Web-only video search from News.com says relatively little more than what we've already known. Google Video, launched in January, will expand to include contributed video clips. When? That's the new part. Sources tell News.com that this will happen by the summer. Another new part is that people will be able to see short 10 second clips. Currently, Google Video only provides video content gathered from monitoring television broadcasts and some additional resources. Video clips are not show, but rather static thumbnail images are displayed, instead. Google launched an uploading service for user-contributions to the service in April.
