Simplifying video search

Exalead has announced a new video search application for its Exalead one:search platform, which gives its users access to millions of video clips indexed from popular online video portals, including YouTube, Dailymotion, Metacare, Vodeo, Kewego and IFILM Web sites. Exalead integrates various categories, such as sports, music, film and entertainment, across multiple platforms, so users can uniformly search for any given item in any category in only one click.

The company's Search by Serendipity navigation system enables a quick narrowing or broadening of a search by clicking on an automatically generated list of related terms or by choosing to search within results by a more specific keyword. For instance, Exalead explains, all videos are indexed using classification information including author, title, date, description, duration, tags and categories, which allows users to sort results by relevance, ratings or number and frequency of views. Other features include searching by length, source and/or keyword.

Exalead adds that each search result listing includes a thumbnail image of the video, title, summary description and details such as author, duration, upload date and a viewer score represented by stars. Placing a cursor over the stars reveals more details about the score, while selecting the detailed view provides instant access to related videos by associated tags and categories.
