Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2007
Dabble.com, the Web's central hub for finding, sharing and organizing rich media from anywhere on the Web, today announced it has indexed more than 10 million videos since coming out of private beta just eight months ago. Dabble has struck hundreds of data partnerships video hosts of all sizes, providing Dabble with the greatest access to the Web's available inventory of rich media resources. Dabble's index collects and keeps a record of where videos are located, descriptions about the video, its creators, what the video is about and its popularity. Dabble users collect and arrange media into play lists which they can organize and share with others according to specific interests.
Dabble's index of over 10 million videos (now growing at 2.5 million NEW videos a month) means users only have to visit one destination to search for video and other rich media. Dabble doesn't directly host any media; the search engine keeps track of the bookmarks, or links, to wherever the media is stored on the web along with all the rest of the essential details about the media. Dabble users add to this details and notes, correct mistakes and share what's valuable to them about the media. This "team effort" enhances the details surrounding the Web's video inventory and lets Dabble know why a video is valuable (in addition to where it is), enabling the Dabble engine to return exceptionally accurate search results.
Mr. Mildenberger comes to Dabble from SupplyFrame, a leading electronic component search engine, which he co-founded and led until recently as CEO. Dabble's founder and acting CEO, Mary Hodder, will step back into her role of Chief Technology Strategist, helping to make Dabble's already powerful search technology even better.
"Dabble was created to be the destination location for finding rich media no matter where it resides on the Web," said Mary Hodder, Dabble's founder. "Before we launched, people who wanted to search for videos had to visit each of the host sites individually and query those databases, which is a very tedious way to find information on the Web. Dabble's reach, which we continue to expand, goes deeper into the Web's total inventory of rich media to include videos at all kinds of sites, both traditional and "user programmed" so people can find anything that interests them, not just the 'most popular.' We're amazed at how much video is put online. It's a testament to how important video on the web has become as a new medium, and our users' ability to arrange all this content through our playlists speaks to how much they enjoy the ability to control what and when they want to see their own video programming."
Dabble's Playlists let people find, tag and collect media important to them in one location for playback at any time. Dabble users create playlists either directly on the Dabble site or by using the available browser toolbar buttons which let users tag videos while they're elsewhere on the web, and send those selections back to their private collection on Dabble.
Dabble collects videos from all over the web, no matter where they are hosted. Dabble gathers video data from hundreds of hosting sites, as well as from tens of thousands of other websites and keeps a record of where web videos are located, descriptions about the video, who made it, what it's about, and its popularity. Dabble's community of users enhances the search engine by adding details and notes, correcting mistakes, and sharing what is valuable to them about the media, enhancing the metadata in a massive team effort that goes far beyond what any one site can do alone. Dabble is the location to find videos of interest to you, no matter what your taste, and gather all the media you've seen elsewhere into one organized collection.
