PodzingerPodZinger has announced that it is now indexing the audio content of YouTube videos, letting you search YouTube videos for spoken words or phrases.

“YouTube has garnered a huge amount of press and interest over the past year. Its reputation as a grass roots online forum for sharing is cemented by it being the driving force behind Time Magazine‚Äôs choice to name the online generated content user/owner as their Person of The Year,” notes PodZinger at their blog. “Now with this new PodZinger feature, you can access and search YouTube material allowing for more specific search of their user generated content. Now besides simply searching on the metadata of the video files, you can search for terms that are actually mentioned inside the audio, allowing for a greater likelihood you will find relevant material. We‚Äôre also automatically organizing the videos into channels based on the actual content of the video. Today you can narrow your search within entertainment, sports, and anime. And we‚Äôll continue to add more.”
