Going beyond basic metadata
Completely agree that users have a closer experience with video than other formats and video content is growing exponentially.  So we need a better way to search it.  If consumers do want a way to search for "car chase", do we have to wait for someone to manually add 'car chase' to the description of all movies with car chases?  What's really interesting is the technology that automatically looks inside videos to understand what they are about so that we don't need to rely on manually generated summaries anymore for searching - like when we moved from searching text files by filename or date to full text search.

What about IMDB
Isn't IMDB home to a ton of Hollywood data? And what about movie ratings services like Rotten Tomatoes?
