Yahoo! Jumps On Video Bandwagon

Despite Google's "Wall Street Darling" status, Yahoo! still
rates as the most popular cyber-destination, getting more
visitors than any other single website on the Internet.

With the recent surge in production and consumption of
online video, it's no wonder that Yahoo! wants a piece of
the action, especially with the intense interest from
marketers eager to find the best way to cash-in with video

Though Yahoo! cataloged online video long before Google's
entry into the online video market, a massive redesign of
Yahoo!'s video interface indicates they want a bigger piece
of the online video pie.

When you log onto, it looks pretty
much like every other online video search engine, such as or

You can search for videos by keywords as well as log in and
upload your own videos right through your web browser to
share with others online.

You can also easily share the videos with your friends in a
number of ways, including: posting it on your blog; sending
an email with a link; and adding it to your publicly
available favorites for others to see.

However, despite the similarities, Yahoo! Video does carry
some variations worth discussing.

Hosted vs. Linked Video

Virtually every single other major video directory on the
web hosts all the video that gets displayed on their sites.

Google Video, iFilm, YouTube and others all force the user
to upload video to their servers before inclusion in the

Yahoo! Video does both. Users can either upload their videos
through their web browsers to the Yahoo! servers or wait for
Yahoo! to find the videos and include them in their

The fact that Yahoo! includes remotely hosted videos in
their search results means you have a better chance of
finding the videos you want, since you get more potential
choices with each search.

However, it also means a greater chance of going on a wild
goose chase when a video file no longer exists on a remote

Video File Formats

Almost every single other video directory converts uploaded
videos to the FLV file format before making them available
for viewing.

This enables both Mac and PC users to view videos using the
free Flash browser plug-in.

On the other hand, since they both host and link to video,
Yahoo! Video makes available multiple file formats,
including FLV, WMV (Windows Media Video), MPEG and more.

Since all of these formats don't work on every computer and
operating system, I believe this will cause confusion among

And, based on my experience, confusion causes people to look
elsewhere for what they want.

Overall, Yahoo!'s video service looks more like a "me too"
effort than a serious attempt at innovation.

Yahoo! does not include video in their main search results
page, the advertising on the video results page is not
targeted, and the multiple file formats will create
frustration for some users.

Despite any shortcomings, if you publish online video, of
course make sure you submit your video to Yahoo! simply
because the Web's most popular site is bound to get you some
extra visitors.
