YouTube Mapplet on Google Maps

By The YouTube Team

Ever wondered what kinds of videos people in Timbuktu are uploading to YouTube? We've just launched a great new way to explore recently uploaded videos from around the world. A new YouTube Mapplet plugs into Google Maps and plots the videos as markers on the map.

To try it out, click on the "Add It to Maps" button here.

When you upload a video to YouTube, just use the "Date and Map Options" to designate the location of your video. Others will then be able to view your video on Google Maps. Neat, eh?

Happy plotting,

The YouTube Team
