Rafe Needleman gives an in-depth overview of Vtap, a new mobile video search application soon to be released by tech firm Veveo. He found that the app returned "more good hits than any other engine I used" -- regardless of platform.
Unlike other video search engines like Blinkx and Truveo, Vtap is only accessible through a mobile Web browser, and the service doesn't crawl the actual video or audio content to create its search index. Instead, it uses the tags and text on the page (metadata) where the file is hosted to generate search results. Veveo is set to launch the service on Sept. 10.
