i was looking at the google search page bored as heck last night, when i thought about its future. How come they dont have a video search feature yet? they could just have another tab for video next to images, ect.

maybe its in the works???? well sooner or later it will pop up there, it would be every guys dream to use it for you know what, lol...

thats all, if you have any ideas about what you think they should do post them!!! :D

I remember AltaVista search engine having this feature back in the day.

edit: Still does. (http://www.altavista.com/video/default)

I think they should simply include movie formats in their "filetype:" option which only is valid for things like .pdf, .rtf, .doc, and other text file types.

If you aren't familiar with this, you can restrict your search to a file type by using that command in the search line.... see search bar below.

You know what? I was searching for something the other day, and I did see a VIDEO link next to IMAGES, GROUPS, etc. Surprised the heck out of me.

It was a non-functional link, though -- it went nowhere -- and it's gone now. But it must mean they're experimenting with it and planning to implement it some time in the future.

Search for video?

Google would become the #1 search engine for porn ;)
