Dabble Video Search is a video search service located at www.dabble.com. Dabble uses human powered search.

Dabble takes human-made gestures and structured metadata to search and discover video. It searches the data around the video as well as gives relevance to videos with human preference activity inside Dabble and outside in other communities and blogs. Dabble also has a social community for grouping videos and for user-made programming. Dabble focuses on the additional problem of video discovery through this community, by offering users easy ways to browse videos based upon human activity and preferences. Dabble searches over 600 sources of videos (sometimes known as content hosters of video) and has 150+ partnerships.

History

Founded in the late Summer of 2005 by (in alphabetical order) Mary Hodder, Steve Michel, Rob Pascual, Tim Perkis, Lisa Rein, Ana Vasconcellos, and Paul Wicks. In June 2006, Lyn Stumfall was made an honorary "founder," due to her significant contribution to the codebase right before the site's first roll out in July 2006.
