Video search from Yahoo

PC World: Yahoo is pushing one of the frontiers for search engines, with its new test site for searching video content on the Web. The site, at, went up last Wednesday, and pits Yahoo against competitors such as Singingfish, which is owned by America Online.

The Yahoo video search service lets users narrow their query results by file formats – such as AVI, MPEG, Quicktime, Windows Media, and Real – size, and duration. Users can also choose to filter results based on internet top level domains, so only results from .com websites would be listed, for example. The service also lets users narrow the search to a specific website. Finally, users can choose to let Yahoo exclude content unsuitable for minors.
