Philipp Lenssen reports that Google Video has added continuous playback. What that means, if is you are watching a specific video you searched on, after that video ends, Google will show you a random video by default right after. It is suggested that Google added this default feature to add a stickiness factor to Google Video, if the videos keep playing the Web users will stick around. But, there are problems with this as Nathan Weinberg points out; watching a video of Rabbis, followed by a video about lesbians kissing – just doesn’t sit right with many.
