Yahoo's video search and Google's are not really the same at this point. Yahoo is searching for video files on the net. Mpegs and avi and wmv files stuck all over the net.

Google is capturing streaming video from TV stations, making screen grabs of the streams, combining this with closed caption text dialog, and the time/date for broadcast.

You can search for broadcasts by keywords in the dialog - completely different, leveraging their keyword prowess and search.

I look for something like an integration with a Tivo like product in the future - maybe :-)

They where rely quick about this, but Google video search is also not fully functional, so I think Yahoos move is just to say we are still following the trend.

The term "video" used by each engine means something completely different.

Google needs to call it "TV search". Yahoo's definition is correct.

Actually, yahoo video beta search was launched quite some time back, this time it is Google that is following Yahoo.

you know that's a really good idea actually. no one cares about another 'video' search engine, but if it was called Google TV search it would make waves.

1. Link?

2. How are they getting the captioning information from streaming video? It's not normally included in streaming video.

zyggy, my point is that they're not getting the cc data from video streams. They're getting it from traditional broadcasts.

Umm...guys?

Following the trend what are you talking about?

Video search, blah. I dont find video search feature usefull, and especially how google defined it. Lycos has this feature for a quite a long period of time now, 4-5 years definetely.

It's just ridiclious if you ask me. That there are articles about "google's about to release video search" and some lycos has it for 5 years now.

Dude, google and yahoo are starting to go on my nerves. I loved google back in 98-99 cuz they were a small unknown company, and had a great search engine. Now, they are not even so great or unique.

If you ask me about any of this, I would put a OVER-RATED sign all over it.
