There were some rumors a few weeks back about Video Search products coming in 2005. Well, we're ready to show you what we've got today--and to ask for your feedback. An early Yahoo! Video Search Beta is now up on Yahoo! Next, our preview site for new technology and applications.

Gentlemen, optimise your filenames, here's comes Yahoo video search. :)

I posted this nine days ago, it's Yahoo, Google, and MSN. All of them want the position as your favorite electronic remote control:

me thinks so. AV also has video search too.

For a second, i thought Yahoo! search did something new..

I think they did start with the code from ATW, but it looks like they are doing something different with it. They seem to focus on the RSS news feeds as opposed to crawling sites for .avi files. ATW has very different results than the Yahoo beta tool.

That was my first thought as well: 'I've seen this somewhere before, oh yeah, alltheweb'.

Does this mean that OPML is no longer necessary? (From Yahoo!'s standpoint?)
