From this week onwards, those who have always loved the ability to play videos within Google Docs will be pleased to know that more can be done with the existing infrastructure – that is, inserting your favorite videos into Google Sites. To put it in a nutshell, you can embed them just about anywhere on the web, while offering captions for your viewers to boot. How do you do that?
When you are still on your Google site, head on to the Insert menu and select Video > Google Docs Video. Pick the videos of your choice within the documents list, click Select and the video will be inserted into your Google site.
A HTML snippet can also be used to embed your videos anywhere else on the web, and do be mindful that embedding your video into your Google site or somewhere else on the web will only be accessible to those whom you have given permission to view said video.
Anyone given this minor improvement a go yet, and how do you find it?
