Video search

Google Video Search

I'm glad that someone is finally deploying this. I saw demos of programs that could do the video segmenting and indexing based on scene transitions and closed caption text in 1996-7 and I remember thinking that it was the coolest thing ever. Now, with Google's search capabilities and UI touches it seems like this can be a good complement to other searches (e.g. Google News). It also appears that they may eventually provide video clips -- I find that in recent years as I've transitioned to more and more online news viewing, I've been missing the video aspect, and video search (with actual clips) can combine the instant accessibility of online news with the richness of the moving image.
