Unsurprisingly, “YouTube dominates the search results,” I’m guessing not because of Google’s acquisition but more because of sheer numbers.
The video search interface will use frames much like Google Image Search does. The initial SERP will feature previews of videos hosted on YouTube and Google Video and thumbnail stills from videos hosted on Metacafe, Break and Veoh.
Google Blogoscoped predicts that we’ll see further integration of video in Google Universal Search in the near future. (And it’s been long said that Google is gearing up for video ads in their main engine SERPs.)
Will Google video search results out perform Blinkx’s? And does it matter, or will their brand strength and reputation carry them through?
