I.e. in the sentence:

I'm searching for gardening related videos.

or:

You may download the two videos at this link...

Thanks.

    Are you asking whether "video" is a word that can be made plural, or whether "videos" is the right way to spell the plural of "video"? (The answer to both questions is yes, incidentally.) – phenry Mar 6 '14 at 17:15
  • @phenry - I was asking both questions, actually. – dentex Mar 7 '14 at 10:50
  • @snailplane - Thanks for the link. The on-line dictionary I saw was missing the information on the plural of the word "video". Thus I asked here. – dentex Mar 7 '14 at 10:52

It is common to use "videos" to describe a plurality of video presentations of some kind, so both of your sentences are correct. On the other hand, if a station has video in the form of three satellite feeds, it has three video feeds, not three videos. Video in the sense of video data is a mass or uncountable noun.

Now, your "gardening related" should be "gardening-related" because the two words taken together function as an adjective applying to videos.

  • I was sure enough about your "video feeds" example usage, while not on the one I asked. And thanks for the tip about the hyphen. :) – dentex Mar 6 '14 at 18:38

Both the words are okay if used properly . If you are using for plural nouns then "videos" is Okay and for singular "video" is also good but I would like to suggest you to follow this format only because this is the more preferable format grammatically.
