Video Search Adds MTV

Video search is moving from newborn to its teething phase. The algorithms and depth of content still leave something to be desired, but at least the interaction is getting more intelligent.

Blinkx.com, which has the deepest pool of authorized content (no offense YouTube) signed a deal with MTV to get access to videos from its reality shows, music videos, and most importantly, Comedy Central. The interface tweaks are helping to making Google Video's search seem like someone's last-minute homework assignment.

Pixsy.com launched a new version of its video/image search engine. While there isn't as much video content, the image search results are displayed at the same time through a very slick Ajax interface. At the rate video search is improving, I wouldn't be surprised if it generates more money than podcasting in 2007.
