Google has introduced an additional feature to Google Docs which allow users to upload, view and store their videos to the productivity suite. Although you can upload any files since last year, you can’t watch videos stored then.
You can upload literally any file to your Google Docs, since early last year, but for videos files, you may not be able to view them on your web browser. Well, now you can. A video player has been built-in to Google Docs and it supports video files of up to 1GB size, and a maximum resolution of 1920×1080 (full high definition). However, flash is required to stream the following supported files:-
- 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)
- FLV (Adobe – FLV1 video codec, MP3 audio)
