Gotuit tags video search

There was so much coverage of the Gotuit SceneMaker release announcement, a tool to clip and tag online video, that I had to step back and take it all in. While at first it comes off as a cool tool, especially for the team here at NewTeeVee, what’s more important is how it could potentially transform the entire video search space.

Besides now being able to search Gotuit’s own library of licensed content (like videos from EMI artists), by allowing users to add metadata to clips on YouTube and MetaCafe, Gotuit has a chance at becoming a niche search destination — similar to the relationship between Technorati and blog search. Google may now own YouTube, but that doesn’t mean they own video search.
