VideoRonk: Metasearch & Download Video with a Single Click

We've written about several video metasearch (aka federated search) tools in 2006. They allow the searcher to simultaneously search multiple video databases with a single query. These metasearch products include:
+ SearchforVideo.com (video podcast directory too!)
+ Blinkx (includes some transcript search)
+ Pure Video (Beta)

We will end the year with yet another video metasearch service, VideoRonk (Beta). Here you can simultaneously search the databases of:
+ YouTube
+ Google Video
+ Dailymotion
+ Metacafe
+ iFilm
+ MySpace Video
+ Vimeo
+ Revver
+ Blip
+ Other "open web" sources

Things to note with VideoRonk:
1) Dynamic search term suggestions as letters are entered into the search box.
2) Option to download video clip to local computer (copyright emptor, of course!).
3) Pre-limited search options for music video.
4) Ability to limit to one specific source.
5) View video clips directly on results pages, Save favorites via cookie-based service. If cookies are cleared, your list is cleared.
6) VideoRonk has a separate site for "adult content."
7) A service of Madrid Spain's Freestyle34.com.
