Google-powered MTV Video

Google System found an example of a Google Video mixing MTV content with ads. The video navigation actually allows you to skip the ads – a good move, as annoying commercials can be ignored, but interesting ones will still get eyeballs.

The video shows Justin Timberlake, but it’s possible this is dynamic content changing with time. The inclusion used on (ringtones-infested) is a JavaScript one-liner ...

<script type="text/javascript" src=" videoembed.js?pubid=ca-pub-0867594963540898&feed=musicchannel.xml">

... but including it on my server fails – I suppose only authorized domains get the content in this stage.

Previously, Google teamed up with MTV.
