Google has issued an email notification warning that it will stop hosting video files for playback on Google Video from 29 April.
Launched in 2005, Google Video was originally intended as a portal for hosting and sharing videos.
However, when the company acquired YouTube in 2006, the focus shifted from hosting files to offering search and indexing functions for video files on the web.
Speculation began shortly after the deal was announced that the days of Google Video were numbered.
In the years since the merger, YouTube has emerged as the preferred platform for hosting and sharing video files, while Google Video has eliminated paid downloads and drifted towards search and indexing functions.
Google said that it will allow allow users to download and locally store video files through a 'download' button until 13 May, when the video files will be deleted.
