Searchme.com Assessment — Part II Video Search

The following is Part II of my searchme.com assessment, a distinctly different search engine.

Without ever having to visit the site where the video is hosted, you can watch the videos you are searching for right from searchme.com’s rolodex style display. The site is set to automatically play each video as you click on it.

If you don’t like that arrangement, you can set the “preferences” to just display the static screenshot. This way of displaying videos really rocks, but would probably infuriate those with older software that is easily bogged down by multimedia.

The only downside right now is that every video I saw was from YouTube. Although the leader, YouTube is definitely not the only video sharing site out there. Give searchme.com some time though, they’re just getting started.

Check out searchme.com’s video search, then let me know what you think.
