Watch YouTube Videos in Google Earth.

Virtual explorers can now discover and watch YouTube videos while they traverse the globe. Starting today, a YouTube layer will be available in the Featured Content folder of Google Earth.
Google is offering a new YouTube video overlay on top of its Google Earth three-dimensional visualization software, which combines satellite images, maps, terrain and buildings of the world.

The new layer enables users to zoom in on any location on the planet and view YouTube videos related to that place. For example, a trip to Maui offers videos of surfing, snorkeling and exotic sea life, while users who fly to Chamonix-Mont Blanc, France, can watch breathtaking videos filmed at the highest points of the Alps.

This is really a mind blowing news for all YouTube fans around the world. Just expand the post from "Read more" link a detailed version is given there , and it will also tell you the simple process for this.

Google Earth users can already view user-contributed photos uploaded to Panoramio, a photo-mapping service Google acquired in May. In the case of YouTube videos, video creators assign geographical information to their works - a process also known as "geo-tagging" - as they upload them to the site.

Google Earth users can watch but not geo-tag videos, a Google spokeswoman said.

Virtual Earth from Microsoft Corp and Yahoo Maps from Yahoo Inc already offer the ability for users to annotate maps with links to Web sites, photos and videos.

But by allowing YouTube creators to tag their videos as they upload them, Google Earth could accelerate the move to tie together maps with online videos. In under two years, YouTube has emerged to become the world's dominant video-sharing site.

Here is Your Simple process for this method of watching YouTube video according to your location or specific area.

First You should download the latest Google Earth client, if they have not yet done so. Once in Google Earth they should open the “Featured Content” folder on the left hand side of the screen and click “YouTube.” Once clicked, icons of the YouTube logo will be visible on the globe. You can either fly from place to place, exploring videos as they go, or they can search for a particular location and view the videos available there.
You just simply mouse over the icon to read the title of the video, and clicking on the icon will open a pop-up bubble. Windows users can watch the video directly in the pop-up bubble; Mac and Linux users should click the link in the bubble to watch the video in their browser. To learn more about the YouTube user who uploaded the video or to view more of their content, you should click on the username.

Hope this simple method works for you and you will surely have more fun in watching YouYube videos ..

I've been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for
me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as
you did, the net will be much more
useful than ever before.
