Google's Video search is a little too simple, if you ask me. Yes, it is easy-to-use, but there is not much of a product. There's no actual video. Have you checked out other products on the market? My favorite is BlinkxTV. It, too, is easy to use. However, you can actually SEE video clips.


i agree with you..blinkxtv is really the best tv search out there. they have video clips you can watch (which is like watching tv). google has yet to release a version that is even comprable to the blinkx version. I dont know why they are calling it google video when its more google pictures!


Blinkxtv doesn't work right for me. For example, when I search for the names of characters in prime time TV shows (e.g. The West Wing), I get few or no results. What's wrong?


There are comments like this (Blinkx rocks, Google sucks) all over the web. Every single comment I've seen comes from a Hotmail or Yahoo -- that is, free and easily obtained -- e-mail address. I suspect an Astroturf (fake grassroots) campaign. I'm sure lots of companies do this, but this one is a little over the top.
