I did a search for some video clips I uploaded and noticed that no results were being returned. Similarly, when you click on the Simliarly Random Videos link on the main page, no results are returned. I guess it's a glitch in the database? Kind of makes you wonder if it's related the Google Base rollout.

Googlebase, a Play in 1 Act
Date: Today
Characters: Peter, Jay, and Frank
Location: Imaginary Googleplex

PETER: "Hey Jay, what do I need to do to connect Google Video to Google Base?"
JAY [shouting across the room]: "Just include the googlebase library and set the baseflag to 1."
PETER: "OK, let's see... yeah, it seems to work."
JAY: "Hmm. Hey Peter, did you try searching for something? I can't find anything on Google Video right now..."
PETER: "What?! Oh dammit..."
[typing sounds]
JAY: "Are you OK?"
PETER: "If Sergey finds out, I'm toast..."
[more typing sounds]
PETER "Ah, that should do it... phew, close one."
JAY: "Never experiment live... you know Sergey doesn't like that..."
PETER: "Come on, you experimented live all day today with Google Base!"
JAY: "Yeah, but that was a 20% project. Yours was an 80% project, right? The Video Search Engine [mumbles: ... which doesn't crawl the web...]"
[Enter Frank]
FRANK: "Hey guys!"
PETER & JAY: "Hey..."
FRANK: "Did you see the slideshow the Google Office team sent around today? Those are some cool Google Words screenshots. Ajax sure beats Windows."
JAY: "Boy, I'm glad we're not evil, 'cause we're sure going to rule the world..."
PETER: "Not evil? Yeah... tell that to Ann."
JAY & FRANK: "Ann?!"
PETER: "She's on the Google Bomb team..."
[drum roll, curtain, audience boos]

The first time I went to google video today, my browser asked me to view a certificate because there was something questionable about it. After accepting it, I was redirected to google web search, and am continually unable to get to google video, even with all different browsers.
