Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Latin videō (I see).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

video (plural videos or videmus)

A VHS 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[edit]

  • 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.
