AOL has launched an update to its AOL Video portal.

New features include:

  • A redesigned main page that makes it easier for consumers to discover, search for and find millions of videos from across the Web;
  • A redesigned video search experience that leverages Truveo video search technology and features better presentation of Web search results to help users more easily find what they are looking for and;
  • A new embedded playback experience where consumers can find and watch videos from other popular video sites on the AOL Video site.

“Consumers want just one place where they can go to find and watch all of the videos they‚Äôre looking for,” said Fred McIntyre, Senior Vice President, AOL Video,¬†”and our new AOL Video portal gives them just that: a single website that brings together millions of videos from across the Web.”

According to the company, the AOL Video portal has become one of the fastest-growing sites on the Internet. Over the past nine months, user demand for online video has propelled the number of unique visitors (UVs) on AOL Video to grow by 300% to eight million UVs per month. In the same period, page views have grown by more than 1200% to 76 million.

AOL also announced the availability of a new Windows Vista-ready sidebar gadget which enables users to watch popular AOL Video content while using other applications. The AOL Video Gadget features five channels – News, Music, Movies, Comedy and Business – each showcasing 10 of the most recent or most popular videos in each channel.
