We've debated adding it a few times before, but the issue we've always run into is that it would be abused and it would be impossible to blacklist any videos from it since they can just reupload it and get a different link.

And since players would be able to upload almost any video to Google Drive without fear of any moderation from Google, it's a system that can and would be abused.

I know that being able to play full movies from there would be extremely convenient, but it would just be too difficult to moderate.

Why not make a separate theater area where people can upload things from Google Docs, blacklist everything from google docs in the other theaters. Make one specifically for google docs.

That still wouldn't prevent people using Google Docs as a way to circumvent our video rules, and if what you're suggesting is a theater that does not adhere to those rules, it's almost definitely out of the question. Something like that is beyond what we'd do just to add a service as an option.
