There are millions of great videos available on the Internet, but finding and playing them on mobile devices is challenging. A few good video apps are available today on mobile platforms, but these are mostly "walled gardens" containing only videos from a single publisher. Even when you can find the video you're interested in, a lack of standards makes video playback unreliable.
MetaChannels was built to deliver open and reliable access to video from mobile devices — as good as or better than what we now have on the Web.
Video from Everywhere
Our index includes videos from all over the Internet. At this moment (January 2011), it includes over 150,000 publishers in +20 spoken languages. Our index is open to any video from any publisher.
Ranked for Super-Relevance
We've developed a proprietary ranking system — ChannelsRank — that produces very high quality search results. We think that our results contain more relevant high quality video than any other video search.
Playable on Any Device
Finding a video you want to watch on your smartphone and then discovering that it won't play is a big frustration for everyone. To solve this problem, our search engine analyzes the detailed video formats of each video in our index and matches it with the video playback capabilities of each device issuing a search request.
We want to watch videos (not Web pages)
Our search results are videos, not web pages. Other search engines are great for finding Web pages. When you click on a Channels search result, a video plays.
