I don't know what else they're using it for now.
Needs a keyboard shortcut for "give me another one with the same query", though. Then it would be both media bliss and a wonderful way to chill out.
I'd personally recommend not finishing this "More Videos" feature. I think the simplicity of just 1 video per search is awesome and creates beautiful serendipity. But, I know such a suggestion is very subjective.
I guess it's good that I didn't. It looks like simplicity won.
JQuery's $.ajax API handles it automatically for you too (if you use the 'jsonp' or 'script' dataType options), which is very nice.
Your getting something unexpected stumbleupon style, but you are controlling the seed of randomness, making it more interactive and game like.
The funnest thing is entering random letters\nonwords. For example "rowlz".
Glitch with "exact search"? It used to return different results last night like best match, but now seems to be literally searching "undefined"
edit: whatever the change was, this guy is going to get a lot more hits now and the site isn't quite as funny: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNR6aEdwRNI
edit2: nvm it appears to be fixed now.
It repeats the video, or a portion of it, and has a neat inline search facility.
Got an awesome video for "doctor who", but I can't find it on youtube.com
E.g. how do I get to what I saw two videos back?
I started typing "drum video", saw something interesting as an intermediate result as I was typing, but as it processed more of my query, it had jumped to a new video before i could click.
Granted, I just retyped my query letter by letter to find what i was looking for ("dru"). But I don't know if a fixed query always bringing back a single result or if that's desired functionality vs limitation vs bug.
I love the single video. In my opinion, instant is far more useful here than it is for regular search. If only it were faster...
pretty cool app.
