Today, you'll notice a redesigned Yahoo Video home page that is much more aesthetically pleasing. You'll see a lot more color and three modules that include:
+ Featured videos
Note: that below each thumbnail is a link to "Find More." Clicking this link runs a search on a topic related to the clip. I selected one clip, clicked "find more" and the search was for the term "funny." Is that really a helpful search?
+ New videos
+ Popular clips (include is a list of some of the companies that Yahoo has content deals with)
In terms of search, I don't see any changes to the advanced search page or search results pages. The Yahoo Search Blog has the official announcement.
