Video -sharing sites like YouTube and Daily Motion allow users to post and share their own videos.
Consumers, news agencies, corporations, advertisers, etc. upload videos, which can then be watched around the world.
Digimind makes tracking what is posted on these sites really easy.
Track with a keyword
The quickest way to track video postings is to add a keyword into the add feed wizard in an agent.
When you click on preview you will then be able to modify the search options.
This will then allow you to select "Videos".
Click on "apply" at the bottom of the list and then on "track" to add this meta-search engine to your agent. This will then generate alerts from a range of video-sharing sites.
Track individual video-sharing sites
You may want to seperate the videos from the different video-sharing sites into different agents. The process is slightly different.
First, open the video-sharing site you would like to monitor. On this site, conduct a search using your keywords. In this example, I am using YouTube to search for "coffee advertising".
Copy the url that starts: www.youtube.com/results?search_query=
And then paste this into the add feed wizard:
Then click on track to add this feed to your agent.
It is possible to add the following video-sharing sites to an agent in this way: YouTube, Daily Motion, Yahoo Screen
