Mefeedia: Extensive But Buggy Multimedia Search
"Mefeedia isn't doing any fancy speech-to-text analysis or probably anything other than searching titles, description and tag fields - but that's ok," Kirkpatrick says. "Other services that leverage heavy technology for media search (like Blinkx or Everyzing) may be good for high-stakes reputation tracking, but as a user I just want an extensive index and a good user experience."
Interface issues knock the stellar offering down a notch, as the service is AJAX-heavy, creating an "undifferentiated mass of lines and white space, fields running over each other and ugly pop-up screens," Kirkpatrick says. Still, while it's not pretty, Mefeedia is extensive and relatively easy to use.
