AOL Adds RSS Feeds To Video Search Engine

    October 26, 2005

AOL announced on Wednesday they’re adding RSS feeds to their video search engine. Video from,,,, PC World, Time4Media will show up and include Transworld Skateboarding, Transworld Snowboarding and Transworld Surf.

Content will include a wide variety with topics ranging from humor, news, and technology to music, sports and video games. Just head to AOL’s Video tab, AOL Search or just the AOL service. Singingfish also got in on the deal and will carry content from the same group.

“We’re thrilled to include these partners in our industry-leading AOL Video Search,” said 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’s video search includes video on-demand of more than 18,000 video assets and some of their in-house organs like AOL Music Sessions and Music Live, Moviefone’s “Unscripted,” the Moviefone Short Film Festival and AOL Coaches.

This is an extension of the one-stop-shop mentality that so many companies have. It’s just another route to make AOL more attractive as Time Warner continues its fishing expeditions regarding stakes in AOL.
