On Tuesday, the much anticipated and controversial new video player from RealNetworks will be released. The player allows users to download videos in all major formats.
The videos are then organized on a desktop application. That application has a dedicated and branded search utility provided by blinkx, the fast growing video search company.
This is a big breakthrough for the San Francisco-based blinkx, which is quickly expanding thanks to the proceeds of a successful IPO on the London Stock Exchange. blinkx says it has indexed over 12 million hours of video.
Below is a video interview I did last year with founder and CEO Suranga Chandratillake.
