Search Battle Heads to Video
Wired News: Search Battle Heads to Video: Startups and independent film sites are creating tools to make putting video online nearly as simple as publishing text. Recently, Yahoo launched a beta version of a service called Media RSS that lets anyone with footage submit videos for distribution.
Bradley Horowitz, director of multimedia and desktop search at Yahoo, said the feature is designed to provide an easy way for 'mom and pop creators of video' to connect with people who might be interested in viewing their content. The RSS feature follows the December launch of a video search engine.
