AOL Bulks Up Video Search Engine with RSS Feeds

Dulles, Virginia - ( Website Hosting Directory ) - October 26, 2005 - AOL has increased its searchable video content by adding several new RSS feeds from partners to its video search engine.

Included in the news video content are RSS feeds from:,,,, PC World and Time4 Media properties including Transworld Skateboarding, Transworld Snowboarding and Transworld Surf.

The new optimized video RSS feeds will be included in America Online's new video search engine available through the portal's Video tab ( ), AOL Search ( ) and on the AOL service. The content will also be available at SingingFish ( ).

''We're thrilled to include these partners in our industry-leading AOL Video Search, stated Kevin Conroy, Executive Vice President of AOL Media Networks. ''With AOL Video Search, we are providing consumers with a faster, easier way to find the best videos on the web.''

AOL is intending to help video producers make their rich multimedia assets more accessible to consumers, and also to allow producers to control the video playback experience in order to help drive traffic back to their web sites.

AOL's video search engine has become one of the leaders in high-quality video content online - in key categories from entertainment to news. Its database draws from the AOL Video on-demand archive of more than 18,000 licensed and originally produced video assets including popular exclusive and AOL-original programs like AOL Music Sessions, AOL Music LIVE!, Moviefone's "Unscripted," the Moviefone Short Film Festival, AOL Coaches and more; over 1.5 million video assets available on the Internet indexed through AOL's Singingfish; and RSS feeds from top video streaming sites.

The combined approach - which is similar in many respects to a traditional meta-search engine - lets people search from one place for high-quality, current online video spanning popular music videos, movie features, television clips, news coverage, sports highlights, and also independently produced videos.
