Mefeedia Rolls Out Comprehensive Multimedia Search Features

  • March 21, 2008 has rolled out multimedia search features aimed at helping users sift through online video and TV clips, audio files and podcasts.

The Burbank, Calif.-based video portal's video search tool combs through clips from over 15,000 video Web sites, including massive aggregators like YouTube and Veoh--using video titles, user tags and meta descriptions to make finding clips easier.

In addition to the core video search engine, Mefeedia also debuted a search tool for TV shows, which pulls content from sites like NBC's Hulu and allows users to find episodes and clips from all the major broadcast and cable TV providers in one place. Users in search of audio clips, including music videos, can try Mefeedia's new music search tool--and the same goes for podcasts.

According to Frank Sinton, Mefeedia's CEO, the portal was founded on the premise that Internet users were ready to move beyond simple browsing and searching when it came to online video. "[Users] are ready for a more personal, relevant experience that allows [them] to search and find new video--no matter where that video is hosted, or what device they are using," Sinton said.
