You Tube, Google Videos, Veoh, MetaCafe etc. are concentrating their efforts towards Video Search Engines. With our current technology, it limits us to search text which is marked as tags to the videos. This is not an ideal way of searching for videos.
Recently Google has tried to allow users to search thru’ computer generated transcripts of Election Videos. This helps in finding more focussed videos and improving the search experience of the users.
Google is also urging its users to Submit Transcripts while sharing/uploading their videos.
Search is currently text dominated. When it becomes Video dominated, it would be interesting to see which software supports video editing. Currently the market does not have a good Video Software Editor.
This means that in future it would still be difficult to find videos as they might not be precise and to the point. It might not be able to tag only certain sections of the video.
