Veoh Bows Video Compass27 Jan, 2009 By: Billy Gil
Web TV site Veoh Networks has debuted the Veoh Video Compass, a Web browser add-on that recommends videos based on what users are searching and what sites they are viewing.
The Veoh Video Compass searches popular Web sites such as Google, Yahoo!, MSNLive, YouTube, eBay and Ask.com for relevant content. Available in beta at www.veoh.com/videocompass, the function resides on the user’s Web browser, supported by Firefox and Internet Explorer 7 (and soon Safari and Chrome as well).
“Online video is not just about entertainment, and it’s not tied to a single destination — video should be a core element of everything people do online,” said Dmitry Shapiro, founder and chief innovation officer, Veoh Networks.
