Google Docs allows streaming of uploaded videos

Google Docs allow uploading of any file types and some even used it for file storage! As of today, though, you can not only store, but play uploaded videos right in Google Docs.

Since Google uses YouTube's player, video files uploaded will be processed and converted. Once ready, streaming of the converted video can be played using YouTube's player.

Supported files for upload:

  • WebM files (Vp8 video codec and Vorbis Audio codec)
  • .MPEG4, 3GPP and MOV files - (h264 and mpeg4 video codecs and AAC audio codec)
  • .AVI (many cameras use this format - typically the video codec is MJPEG and audio is PCM)
  • .MPEGPS (MPEG2 video codec and MP2 audio)
  • .WMV
  • .FLV (Adobe - FLV1 video codec, MP3 audio)

Tip: To find all the videos uploaded to your Google Docs account, use this URL:
