Blinkx Adds Music Videos To The Mix
Online video search engine blinkx has launched blinkx Music, a new tool aimed at helping users find and watch music videos on the Web.
"There are hundreds of thousands of music videos available on the Web today which makes it nearly impossible to navigate and find what you are looking for," said Suranga Chandratillake, CEO and founder, blinkx.
"Based on the success of blinkx Remote, our online TV guide, we recognized there was a need to help organize music videos and make them easily searchable on the Web. By leveraging our award-winning video search index, we built blinkx Music to help our users find their favorite music videos quickly, easily and in one place."
Blinkx Music has indexed over 33,000 hours of music video from more than 10,000 artists. Users can search by artist, album, genre or song to watch music videos. Users can also post comments and interact with other fans.
Last week MySpace rolled out MySpace Music Video and Google is partnering with iLike and Lala to launch its own music video offering. Also in the works is Universal Music Group’s "Hulu for music" Vevo.
