Searching Google+ Auto backup for videos and movies

The Google + Photos has evolved! They started with Google + Instant Upload and have since renamed the feature to Google + Photos Auto Backup.  But the service also backs your movies up too!


Unfortunately, they’re not as easy to search. Fortunately, I found a simple way, and thought I’d share it.


  1. Log in to Google +
  2. Navigate to your Photos
  3. Perform a search in the seach box for “mp4″

You should get back all of your videos (and only your videos), assuming they were originally mp4′s. If not, you can also search on mpgmpeg, mpeg4, avi, etc…
