As the online video world explodes with everything from amateur snippets to full-length features, new search engines are crawling, tagging and organizing the visual data.
The goal: To find the most relevant video, and not just any video.
Clearly, we’re at a point when watching video online has become an intriguing, amusing and entertaining experience. Seven years ago, when I started doing videos that were streamed on the Web, it was painful for me to watch the 15 frames per second and the endless buffering. Today, it’s less painful and certainly bearable.
By 2007, consumers won’t just want bearable video, however. They’ll want organized video. Heretofore, it’s been about making video available and easy to watch. Tomorrow, it’ll be about making it easy for people to find what they want amid the explosion of video content going online.
