"!video" searches now take you to a 404 from google.

When trying to use the !video bang to search, I now get a page from google with the following:

  1. 404. That’s an error.
  2. The requested URL /videosearch?q=<whatever>&sitesearch= was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

Is anyone else seeing this?
It might be an idea to redirect this to the same place as !youtube or !vimeo for the time being?

Yep, I'm replicating it. If you use !v or !watch (which are supposed to be the same as !video) you get directed correctly to youtube.
