Hulu’s Got Embeds and I’m on KNTV

I gotta hand it to Hulu. The NBC-Fox joint venture is quickly becoming the most user-friendly online video service.
Thanks to NewTeeVee for the tipoff on a cool new feature over at Hulu.com. The premium video site now lets you search for additional videos while you are watching Hulu videos embedded on another site, such as a blog. So you don’t even have to be on Hulu.com to do the searching. I’ll demonstrate by embedding a video right here.
You should be able to type your search query in the text field in the top right corner of the embedded player. So check it out.
On another note, I have begun contributing on-air reports on digital media to NBC-owned KNTV in San Francisco. And—isn’t this convenient—the reports also just happen to be carried online. Some of the topics are on issues I have covered here already, but they are now tailored for a consumer audience. Here’s one on how celebrities are using online video.
