Sunnyvale, Calif.—Yahoo! Thursday announced the launch of Yahoo! Video, an online video destination that combines Yahoo! Search functionality with new features to upload, browse and establish communities.
Yahoo! currently hosts and serves music, news, sports, movies and TV videos. The new destination combines that service with content from across the Web that is searchable.
Users can also subscribe to specific "channels," which are groups of related videos, as well as participate in a social community by rating, reviewing and sharing videos. Content can be shared through Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Messenger, its instant messaging platform.
