The status of Video Search (apart from image search options from Yahoo!, Google and MSN):
  • IBM's project, code-named Marvel
  • Singingfish (part of AOL): works on a solution from November 2003, and was bought by AOL subsequently in 2004
  • Yahoo! Video Search: beta version Dec 15, 2004
  • Blinkx: beta version Dec 16, 04
  • Google: planned for 2005
  • MSN: ???
These search engines fill their databases indexing either phonemes from the audio file (Blinkx), the video file (Singingfish) or both (Yahoo!).
