Google Earth Gets A Touch Of YouTube
You won't have YouTube videos popping out of the North Pole, but you will be able to see which videos have been shot in a certain location.

In order to access this feature, users must go to Google Earth's “Featured Content” folder on the left-hand side of the page. A click on the YouTube button will have icons pointing to videos related to that area popping up on the selected area on the map. As expected, the number of displayed videos will grow if the user decided to zoom in for a larger image of the location.
Also, users can search for all videos attached to a specific location. The videos can be watched via Google Earth or YouTube.
The downside of the new feature (for the time being) is that the overlay doesn’t filter videos. The same location may feature various videos and don't act all surprised if you see a famous American figure parked right next to an alien ship, ok?
