English

Etymology

From the root vide of Latin videō (I see) + -o, formed in analogy to audio.

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /ˈvɪdɪˌoʊ/
  • (file)

Noun

video (countable and uncountable, plural videos)

 
A VHS video casette
  1. Television, television show, movie.
  2. A short film clip, with or without audio (as in a music video, or one of the plethora of user-generated short movies on sites such as YouTube).
  3. Motion picture stored on VHS or some other format.
  4. (dated) VHS.

Usage notes

  • Video is used in contrast with audio, which is sound only.
  • The plural videmus is rare and used for humorous effect. It is the first-person plural form of the Latin verb ("we see") in the same way that video is the singular.
