Google Web Video Search

In the next two months Google plans to launch a new search engine for web-only video. The new service will allow previews of media clips

Currently, Google Video is limited to searching the closed caption text and displays screen shots, not actual video.

What’s interesting is how Google plans to further montetize their video service:

“Longer term, Google is preparing a payment system for a premium video service that would let people pay to watch full video clips. Google is talking to several top-tier content providers, including Hollywood movie studios, to gain agreements for aggregating their video and selling premium or pay-per-view access.” via CNET

Yahoo Video which indexes video files found on web pages, shows full videos for free.

Same goes for Blinkx Video which indexes videos from media sources rather than spidering web pages.

AOL recently added several new content partners for its Singingfish video search.
