Video Search Goes Mainstream
Thread Description:


Yahoo! are adding a tab for video search to the main search interface shortly and Google have added http://video.google.com subdomain today - reported at numerous sources

I must admit to not even having played around with Yahoo's vid search but i hear Jenna Jameson is launching a new wireless ad campaign so i'll probably be doing a little research on that one...

Also, i keep meaning to investigate Blinkx.tv but it just looks so confusing and if i don't get how to work it within a few seconds i get all upset....

More on Yahoo! & Google Video Search

Now i've managed to drag myself out of bed i find a whole bunch of posts on this stuff, unsurprising. On good topic to talk about is Google dont have actual videos, but Yahoo! do... This from Forresters Charlene Li

My hunch is that this is a way to demonstrate to reluctant studio producers that video search could help them monetize their video content if they make it easily discoverable. Imagine Google partnering with DVR services like TiVo to do one-click recording of future episodes. Yet another is to enable video-on-demand ordering with your local cable provider, where users would pay-per-view to see the episode that aired two weeks ago. Or movie studios could sample a segment from a movie and allow online streaming of just that one section for a fee through partners like CinemaNow or Movielink.

But the last entry on googleblog is from Jan 17: the 'nofollow' posting.

For now, About Google Video explains that what's in the d...

People are getting the wrong idea

A lot of people are getting the wrong idea of Google Video it is not a way of downloading tv shows its for viewing snippets of the text along with still images from the show. So totally different from Yahoo Video

Scantily Clad Ladies? More please

Keep up the good work Nick, can we have some more. It brightens up a dull office on a Tuesday morning :-)

Maybe even the odd bloke for the ladies amongst us?

something for the laydees?

that's very sweet that you think of us but I can say with reasonable confidence, on behalf of all the ThreadWatch Girlies, that Ron Jeremy in red PVC won't do the same for us that Jenna apparantly does for you.

What no hedgehog?

OK, i get your point :)

Yahoo vs Google

Very different approaches to vids, which is interesting.

I can see the Yahoo! approach getting more webmaster use, though. :)
