Yahoo Video Search now publicly available

By Derek Sooman on
Yahoo has announced its own video search. With sources including CBS News, MTV and all the other sorts of random stuff that the internet always seems to have, searches do produce some interesting results. For instance, I was able to find a video of Sarah Michelle Gellar topless, as well as a video of two dogs fighting in a park, and that classic video of the monkey drinking its own pee. Isn't the internet wonderful?

Currently available content on Yahoo Video Search includes news clips from CBS News and Reuters, music videos from Country Music Television, MTV.com and VH1.com and movie clips and trailers from IFILM.com. It also carries video clips from Scripps Network's Home & Garden Television and The Food Network as well as from Discovery Communications' Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and Travel Channel.

Google's video search is still in beta, but probably not for long.

The move came just days after rival Web search provider Google Inc. announced new partners for its test video search service, which allows Web users to scour closed captioning content and see still shots of video clips. Google also has put out a call for people to submit their own video to the service.
