AT&T debuts video search site

VideoCrawler, created through a partnership with a start-up called Divvio, can search more than 1,600 video sites. It doesn't host any videos, but members can compile playlists.

AT&T isn't the brand that comes to mind when you think of online video search, but let's get past that point: the telecommunications company has announced a beta version of a site called VideoCrawler, which can search more than 1,600 online video outlets. AT&T hasn't released a full list of compatible video sites, but Google's YouTube is one of them.

VideoCrawler was developed in conjunction with start-up Divvio, a search company that constructed the VideoCrawler platform.

VideoCrawler doesn't host any videos, but members can still compile playlists and share them through embeddable widgets.

Other players in this space include Blinkx and the AOL-owned Truveo.
