Have I missed something; have Google now stopped using Author images and video snippets in SERPS?

The stopped using Author's G+ Images about 5 or 6 weeks ago. The snippets of all kinds started losing speed about 9 months ago, mostly Rich Snippets. Some sites still have their data shown, most are gone. If the video is not in YouTube, they often don't show up or if the data format doesn't stick to schema specs. A few threads that might help you find more information are these discussions. (There are more, but you can search for specific interest discussions with the link at the top of the pages here.)
