Video search engines compared

Although YouTube appears to be ubiquitous when it comes to online video, there are plenty of other sites and search tools that exist to support this rapidly expanding online medium. A recent article published by The Wall Street Journal reviews 4 of the main video search tools - as well as YouTube, the article compared Yahoo! Video, Blinkx and the relaunched Truveo search tool.

The article provides a useful summary of the 4 different tools and looks at the way that results are displayed and how accurate they can be. As ever, the message is that whilst Google (and YouTube) may be the automatic first port of call to find information or videos on the web, there are other tools available that can be just as good, or better, and deserve a try!
