Online portal AOL has launched a video search engine for UK web users. Truveo indexes online videos from established media players as well as web users uploading their own content.

"The recent explosion of online video is a worldwide phenomenon. All over the world, individual users as well as major media companies are making their video available on the web," said Timothy Tuttle, CEO and co-founder of Truveo.

"Truveo's ongoing mission is to index and organise all of the video on the web so that users can easily find the video they want—no matter where in the world they reside."

Truveo was founded in 2004 and acquired for an undisclosed sum by AOL in 2006. Truveo powers video search for several online properties, including CNET's Search.com, Brightcove, Qwest, Kosmix, CSTV, Infospace and Excite.
