Search Plus for Video Beta is a cool new video search addon/extension/plugin for Mozilla Firefox offered by SEMInformatics. I downloaded the plugin which enables video search results from youtube to be shown on search engine results pages for each and every search that I perform in my Firefox browser.
It is a fairly simple idea that uses Youtube's API to serve video search results in a frame above your search engine results (regardless of the search engine provider).
Below is a screenshot of a search results page that I was shown in Firefox for a general search on Google – "newport beach parties."
Clearly the results that you will be shown are biased based off videos available only on YouTube, which is the reason that I choose the keyword phrase above for this example (Youtube has lots of this type of content) However, most general (non-"long-tail") searches with 3 keywords or less seem to produce results. Some of the best search results come with music related searches due to the vast amount of music related videos available on Youtube.
