Video Search Updates

Video search providers Searchforvideo and blinkx today made improvements to their video search platforms.

Searchforvideo debuted a new Web site that now sorts content by content provider, making it easier to find clips from a given service, such as iFilm, Heavy.com, AOL Video, Roo, and MSN Video. The search engine has been steadily adding content providers to its index, and this move makes those partnerships more prominent, and makes the searchforvideo.com more of a destination site.

Blinkx has added video content from Internet TV provider Veoh Networks. Veoh offers content from major entertainment studios and television networks, as well as independent video producers and enthusiasts. Blinkx has announced several such content partnerships in recent months. Deals have been made with professional content providers like QVC UK, Broadband Sports, World Fashion Channel, Rolling Stone and Boston.com, as well as with user-generated content sites like YouAreTV, VMix, and vpod.tv.
