Hodder's Dabble Video Directory Service Launches

Heather Green

Dabble, the video search and social networking site started by blogger Mary Hodder, is launching today.

As with many services that offer leaps forward, Dabble is trying to solve a simple, but hard problem: How do you sift through the millions of videos being created, but uploaded on the scores of different video sites. Dabble lets you sift through video sites including YouTube, MySpace, Revver, Blip.TV, Grouper, Brightcove, VideoEgg, and Vimeo

In a press release Hodder explains it best: “Besides information about the video itself like the title or where it’s hosted, we have information about who made it, who’s in it, tags from outside Dabble as well as our users, and who’s watching and collecting it into playlists. Dabble exposes the value of media. We’re like a new kind of guide for the new TV: web video.”

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
