Brief: Google Adds YouTube-Like Features To Video Service

Google Video now lets users add their comments to a list, rate a video on a five-star scale and associate the clip with a particular word or phrase to help them and others find it at a later time.

The new features, released this week, are similar to what's offered on YouTube, one of the most popular online video services with 12.6 million unique visitors in May, according to ComScore Networks.
