Google fixed a glitch in Blogger this week and also released a video upload feature for the blogging service.

Google's Blogger team this week solved a technical problem with the blog-publishing and -hosting service and introduced a feature that gives publishers the ability to upload videos to their sites.

An undetermined number of Blogger publishers had trouble performing various editing and posting operations last week, but by Wednesday the problem had been solved.

On Wednesday, Blogger and its Blogspot hosting platform also suffered an outage that lasted little over an hour and affected the entire system.

After marking the eighth 'birthday' of this free blogging service on Thursday, Google announced the video upload feature on Friday.

"This feature allows you to upload videos and create a video podcast with the same ease that we currently provide with photo uploading," reads the announcement in the official Blogger Buzz website.

Publishers will see a new button in the Blogger editing console to upload videos stored in their computers. More information and a how-to video can be found on this page.
