Yahoo Inc. late on Wednesday said its video search service that helps Web surfers find such things as news clips, music videos and movie trailers from such sources as CBSNews.com, MTV.com and IFILM.com is now widely available to the public.

Yahoo Video Search, located at http://video.search.yahoo.com, rolled out as a test in December.

The new general release enables Web users to find and view all types of video -- from news footage and movie trailers to clips from television shows and independently produced videos.

The move came just days after rival Web search provider Google Inc. announced new partners for its test video search service, which allows Web users to scour closed captioning content and see still shots of video clips. Google also has put out a call for people to submit their own video to the service.

Yahoo, Google, Microsoft Corp., Ask Jeeves Inc. and handfuls of upstarts like Blinkx are racing to provide all of the information consumers seek on the Web while cashing in on lucrative search advertising.

Currently available content on Yahoo Video Search includes news clips from CBS News and Reuters, music videos from Country Music Television, MTV.com and VH1.com and movie clips and trailers from IFILM.com. It also carries video clips from Scripps Network's Home & Garden Television and The Food Network as well as from Discovery Communications' Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and Travel Channel.

Yahoo's other partners include TVEyes, Internet Broadcasting Systems, The One Network, and Stupid Videos.

Google Video's new partners include the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, the Discovery Health Channel, CNN, and others.
