AOL re-launches video search site

AOL re-launches video search site AOL has relaunched, intended to be a service for viewers to find both user-generated and professionally produced video clips. The site has been rebuilt based on search technology acquired by AOL in 2006.
"Over the past year, there has been an explosion in the amount of professionally produced video that's available on the Web," Timothy Tuttle, CEO and co-founder of Truveo and senior VP of AOL Video, said in a prepared statement. "While today's popular video sharing sites offer a wide variety of user-generated video, they rarely give users the opportunity to find professional, mainstream video. The new solves this problem, so whether it's a dog riding a skateboard or the latest episode of The Daily Show, is the one-stop site for finding videos from across the Web."

Truveo's search engine is used on AOL Video, AOL Search, Microsoft, Infospace and hundreds of other sites.

Now all we need is video search engine that can go through all of the video sites. It seems that a new site is popping up every day.

This stuff is one of my points from another post on another thread. All of these companies at trying to capitalize on what regular people made possible years ago. They want to put a price tag on what was made to be free. I would never search for videos from any of these companies.
