Anyone have any thoughts on where your content is best placed to get the best exposure? We've seen recently with Google's universal search results that vids can now be a part of basic SERPs. I am wondering if they're more likely to be listed among top results if they come from Google Video as opposed to YouTube.

Also, in Google's Help section for video, they say that "ultimately we envision most user-generated and premium video content being hosted on YouTube so that it can further enhance the YouTube experience."

Part of me says to submit my vids w/ YouTube b/c that's where all the action is and videos submitted via Google Vid should show up there anyway. The other says I might get a higher number of views if I submit them to Google Video.

Lastly, I am fearful that if I submit the videos to both services it'll be seen as spamming and my videos will be penalized. Ideas?
