(..) Yahoo (..) is releasing a finalized version of its video search engine, after five months of "beta" testing. It will also announce alliances with CBS News, MTV, Reuters and others to include their video clips within its searchable database.

Google, (..) announced (..) a string of new liaisons with TV programmers, including the Discovery Channel and CNN, so that people can find still images and text of their shows in its index. (..) however, is continuing public tests of Google Video, (..)

Also, Yahoo said that it will allow video creators to send links of their content via Really Simple Syndication for inclusion in its database. In recent weeks, Google introduced a program in which independent and professional video producers can upload their shows into Google Video. (..)


Broadband adoption in U.S. households is driving consumers' appetite for watching video online. (..)

Yahoo, Google, Blinkx, ShadowTV and a cadre of others are jockeying to bring consumers the most useful service to locate and watch video online. But many of them are also aiming to bridge the Web with TV so that consumers will eventually be able to search for and watch digital video via TV set-top boxes, PC or a mobile device.

On the road to achieving that goal, (..) must work through many business issues before making money from the projects, however. Securing licensing rights to broadcast full video on their Web sites is one major hurdle. Google and Yahoo have yet to offer video playback on their own sites. Yahoo points visitors to third-party sites for viewing video, and Google shows only still images.

More importantly, they must develop a business model that makes sense for broadcasters, advertisers and their operations. (..) Yahoo, (..) could include (..) existing revenue streams from advertising sales and subscription fees. (..)

(..) "We felt like the product is ready for prime time."
