Dabble video search launches today. It accesses over 240 video hosting sites, including small independent sites alongside YouTube, Revver, Bilp.tv, Google Video, etc.
Its 120 partnerships (and growing) are more necessary in video search because active, direct collaboration is necessary where spidering is blocked. In the long run, this may help Dabble position itself as an axis for video content.
Dabble is working to systemize the varied permission methodologies of hosts to create their video database. Mary Hodder, CEO says, they’re working on creating RSS feed standards with several sites, including Photobucket, as well on mirrorplay, a tag-sharing standard built on xFolk, with bilp.tv, mefeedia, and others.
