This week Google unveiled their new “Google Universal Search” function that integrates text, photos, video, news, scanned books and blogs in a single list of results. The search engine will automatically check Google Video‘s archive and allow users to click on a “watch video’ link that will embed the video right on the search results page.
Other video sites publishing clips or full-length versions also appear. Several companies have been working to improve video search on the net, but none with Google’s pedigree or market share.
