Navigating the internet for the day’s finest video picks can be a tough, especially with the sheer quantity of material now on offer. Gloob.TV (which has just emerged from beta testing) aims to relieve web users of that task by doing all the hard work for them.

The website’s big idea is this: a team of around 25 editors scours the web each day to track down only the very best videos, ranging from entertainment and the arts to news and journalism, so that users don’t have to “trawl through all the crap” (as it so eloquently puts it) to find what they want.

Library Book ShelfYour local library may now be riding the internet video download train by offering various video titles on its website for download.

Libraries have previously acted as small-scale free video rental outlets and now various libraries across the U.S. are beginning to offer the same titles as movie download sites, although the focus is generally on the special interest and indie film variety.

It would be worthwhile checking your local libraries website to see what video downloads they have available. Libraries all over the U.S are doing this including the libraries in the entire state of Wyoming.

Tagging Features

Marshall Kirkpatrick of the SplashCast Blog has written an insight into using tagging to collect and share videos.

In this instance he is discussing tagging as the process of finding a video and bookmarking/saving it along with keyword/s. So for example you may find a cool Jim Carrey video and tag it as "Jim Carrey", "Actors" and "Comedy".

You can now use the video in your own library, or as part of a web TV channel you share with other people. If you or your friends wanted to see a library of Jim Carrey videos then that video would be added into the library since you tagged it as "Jim Carrey".

YouTube Full Screen Exit

One thing that really annoyed me about YouTube was its inability to get videos to go truly full screen. The videos were always locked within your browser window and never took up the full space of you monitor, not to mention the fact going full screen restarted the video.

Now YouTube has solved this and offers a fluid full screen option. The full screen button now quickly resizes the video to take up the whole of your screen and you just simply press Esc to exit.

The full screen mode works in a very similar way to the StreamCast Player I talked about a couple of days ago.

ZamZarI recently showed you how to download videos from sites like YouTube using VidDownloader, but unfortunately that site has disappeared off the face of the Earth.

So instead why not try ZamZar which works in a very similar way. In fact ZamZar is much better!

Blinkx LogoBlinkx, the online video search engine, has launched a new feature called Blinkx Remote which is basically a list of different TV shows that you can watch online.

Blinkx Remote will let you know what TV shows are available to watch online for free (& legally) with a picture of a little TV screen.

Blinkx Remote will also let you know if the shows are available to purchase, such as from the iTunes store, with a picture of the $ sign.

It also lists video clips from around the internet for whatever TV show you are looking at. Some of the clips may even be full episodes too.

Blinkx Remote.

The CW Television NetworkLike many other television networks including Fox, ABC and NBC, the CW Television Network is offering a number of its TV episodes online and has been doing so since January this year.

Once again this is only available to people connecting from within the US, unless you know how to connect via a US proxy (I’ll show you how to do this sometime I promise!).
