(Via Wired)The internet can be a convenient resource for finding much-talked-about events on video. Video clips of high-profile moments have sent millions of net users scrambling to search engines for footage. Internet users who don't patronize peer-to-peer sites had few options for tracking down video content outside of entering a query in a standard search box.Large net portals and a handful of smaller sites are looking to change that. Yahoo, Google and MSN have each rolled out services designed to make it easier to upload or locate video online. The portals' rollouts come as a handful of startups and independent film sites are creating tools to make putting video online nearly as simple as publishing text. Yahoo launched a beta version of a service called Media RSS that lets anyone with footage submit videos for distribution. This year, Yahoo is projecting that the number of videos streamed over the web will grow by nearly 50 percent from last year. Net users are expected to stream more than 21 billion videos in 2005, up from 14.2 billion last year.
