Online Video Guide

If you've watched all of YouTube's hundred-million-and-counting videos and still have some time to spare, unglue your eyes from the computer monitor, get up, stretch, and then come back and check out this site. Online Video Guide connects users with video content from YouTube and dozens of other video providers. You can search or browse by provider or category. Some of the video sites accessible from Online Video Guide you may not have heard of include video-sharing sites photobucket and vidiLife, but you can also look up professional clips from the History Channel, Oprah, and the major television networks, just to name a few. While I applaud the site's efforts to bring together so many facets of this increasingly popular trend, I can't help but feel that the directory concept the site employs seems a bit old-fashioned in an era dominated by search engines.
