easy procedure to upload google video to youtube

As mentioned here,google was deleting hosted content at google video and informed users about that.Though the procedure was very cumbersome-first need to download the video and then reupload them into youtube.So requested them to provide a simple button for directly uploading into youtube without downloading.Google listened to us and provide it now.
The quotes are excerpts from my request and their reply respectively-
is it possible to create a import button in youtube,so that these videos could be transported automatically without downloading?

Last week we sent an email letting you know we would be ending playbacks of Google Videos on April 29 and providing instructions on how to download videos currently hosted on the platform. Since then we’ve received feedback from you about making the migration off of Google Video easier. We work every day to make sure you have a great user experience and should have done better. Based on your feedback, here’s what we’re doing to fix things. 
Google Video users can rest assured that they won't be losing any of their content and we are eliminating the April 29 deadline. We will be working to automatically migrate your Google Videos to YouTube. In the meantime, your videos hosted on Google Video will remain accessible on the web and existing links to Google Videos will remain accessible. If you want to migrate to YouTube now, here’s how you do it: 
  • We’ve created an “Upload Videos to YouTube” option on the Google Video status page. To do this, you’ll need to have a YouTube account associated with your Google Video account (you can create one here). Before doing this you should read YouTube’s Terms of Use and Copyright Policies. If you choose this option, we’ll do our best to ensure your existing Google Video links continue to function.
 So,now its much easier to migrate into youtube.Just select the left sided box for the videos to be uploaded into youtube and then press the button "upload videos to youtube".And you are done!!!!!!!!!!!
