Google Videos to nix your flix

On May 13, all that you've uploaded to the video-sharing site will disappear as the service turns into a video search index.

Google is closing its Google Videos site and binning your old movies. The search giant, which also owns YouTube, won't keep the videos that have been uploaded to the site.

Google Videos began as a video-sharing site, but it became a lame duck when Google bought the Web's leading video site, YouTube, in 2006. In 2009, Google stopped allowing you to upload your movies to Videos, but has continued to host the videos that are already there.

That ends on May 13, when the videos will all disappear and the service turns into a video search index. Videos that have been uploaded to the service will not be saved.
