English

Etymology

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

Pronunciation

Noun

video (countable and uncountable, plural videos or videmus)

 
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).
    Synonyms: clip, vid
    We made a video montage of Robbie for his fiftieth birthday.
    Check out my new videos on 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. It is also sometimes used in contrast with film to describe all other motion picture formats, such as videotape and digital video. The words video and movie have some synonymous overlap, but a feature film on the big screen is only a movie in idiomatic use (not a video), and web-era user-created videos are usually not called movies except in certain contexts.
  • 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 videō is the singular.
