Right after, launch of it’s Beta Mail services, Lycos partnered with Blinkx to provide “Video Search” on it’s site.
Techcrunch —”Blinkx stands out because it indexes not just text metadata but also the spoken word in video footage via speech recognition. The company reported this summer that it’s now indexed more than 4 million hours of audio and video content. Thus the new Lycos video search page also includes the option to search audio content as well. It’s a lot like Podzinger from TVEyes but for international video, with an emphasis on educational content.”
