I am considering using as the main storage point for all my pictures and videos. Strangely, Google has officially stated that This is very frustrating since it essentially means that it is not future-proof to use Picasa as the single storage place for videos. It also seems contrary to the of Google's own. Thus, there seems to be a slim hope that downloading videos might be made possible in the future. Wallix Pro.
Unless there is a specific reason for this unfriendly policy. What is the reason for the policy? Is it just technically difficult, or is there some business reason for actively disabling it? If I understood this better, I could better judge the likelyhood of this feature beeing supported in the future. (I realize that there are some for downloading videos but they are cumbersome, they do not seem to support HD, and they are impractical to use on a large number of videos). I understand your frustration, especially since everyone is telling you Picasa's only purpose is for sharing. Although it has a huge emphases on that, it is only the primary location for storing ones personal photos with Google's service.
You were very close in your searches when you talked about Google's Data Liberation. There is in fact a place for you to download your entire Picasa account. That is Google Takeout. For the sake of verifying, I downloaded my complete Picasa account and found that it does in fact include all your videos. One limitation is that you're not free to select which videos or albums for that matter. You are forced to do a complete download of your Picasa account. I'm going to explain it as simply as I can.
Picasa Web Album or Youtube, both are Photo/Video Sharing Service, where the main motive is the distribution of content among viewers, which can be done without the option to download. Providing the feature to download a content always has a copyright issue as they'll be giving you the complete control over that amount of data. So the option to download the content is avoided in these kind of sharing services. You'll notice that even the option to download the images are unavailable at Picasa. And for the point of downloading your own data, remember that Picasa/Youtube are NOT online backup services. The only point of their service is sharing content. Not backing them up for future use.
While we might use them for the backup purpose, but that is completely our point of view of the service. If you want to backup your data, use online backup services like Dropbox etc. But Picasa/Youtube were built to share content. So there is no point of the option to download. Again, it's not about whether they can provide the option or not. They can easily provide the feature to download if they want to.
But then the whole motive of the product is lost. You can download individual videos using the command line tool, with a command such as this one: google picasa get 'album_name' --photo 'filename_of_movie' Both the album name and the movie filename are treated as regular expressions, meaning that (within some limits) you can use a fragment of the full name, as long as it's unique. By using a common prefix/suffix you can batch-download multiple videos this way. Google picasa get 'album_name' --photo 'MP4' The only caveat to this approach is that the videos won't necessarily be in the same quality as the original. My HD uploads get downloaded in this way at around one third of the orignal's file size.
(the resolution is the same, they only seem more compressed).
