AOL has updated its video search engine Truveo with a new application for the iPhone that includes new features and additional videos.
The new features for the iPhone application includes "Intelligent Query Completion" which assists users by suggesting keywords or television shows. Users can also search for videos by length.
ESPN has partnered with AOL to make its short-form video content accessible through AOL Video and AOL Sports.
It’s the first time that ESPN has made its video content available through an Internet portal. ESPN will provide highlights from games and sporting events along with video clips via an embedded ESPN video player.
Video search engine Truveo has launched a presidential video election page focused on the 2008 race.
The site features election related videos from television networks, user generated video sites and the campaigns themselves. The site includes pages of the candidates in the Democratic and Republican primary races. Candidates featured include Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Barack Obama on the Democratic side and Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, John McCain, and Mitt Romney on the Republican side.
Until today, AOL’s December 2005 acquisition of video search startup Truveo has been a white-label technology behind the video capabilities of many of the Web’s biggest sites. With its relaunch as a destination portal, Truveo became the top contender for best video search site in the world.
If, as Compete suggests, 20 million visitors is the "magical mark" indicating a website has officially arrived as a dominant force – most recent additions to this exclusive club include Digg.com and Facebook – then the folks behind AOL’s Truveo video search engine must have exchanged their old wands for Super Deluxe models.
Time Warner’s AOL recently purchased Truveo.com, a video search site that opened its virtual doors to the public in September 2005; only three months later the startup became part of AOL and may be the enabling mechanism behind its forthcoming video store.
