Popular Video Searches

19 May 2005

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Popular Video Searches on Yahoo! :

Popular Yahoo! Video Searches

This is what you'll see at video.search.yahoo.com.

It uses Buzz.yahoo.com+ underneath and generates random picks from the top video searches for you. You can refresh the page to see different terms everytime.

+ Disclosure: I'm the engineer for Buzz and I worked behind-the-scenes for this new feature :)

Bollywood please :)

Looking at "Harry Potter trailer", I tried "Paheli trailer" ..no results found.
Oh! I guess this just shows what's out there on the web. Yahoo is not hosting anything.

The video search results can be displayed better?

on Google: http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=harry+potter+trailer&btnG=Search+Video
on Y!: http://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video?ei=UTF-8&fr=sfp&p=Harry+Potter+trailer

But cool feature, and nice to know you are working on something trendy ;)

@Pramod: Yeah, I guess Bollywood is not net-savvy enough ;) ... I haven't noticed GVS before, but you're right about the UI. Also, thanks, I'm working on lot of stuff like this these days :D

@JD: Thanks :)
