AlltheWeb Video

From 2001 to 2009 AlltheWeb offered a video search, using the FAST Video Search. In the video search, keywords could be used to search for video files. In addition, an advanced video search was offered. This allowed the search to be restricted to file formats such as AVI, AVI/DivX, MPEG, Real and QuickTime. Filters allowed to exclude unwanted content. The videos could be downloaded or streamed. The results contained information about the duration of the video in hours, minutes and seconds and the file size (in megabytes, MB).
