Podzinger: A new way to search for content within podcasts

GuyPardon Guy Pardon Profile: GuyPardon

Podzinger distinguishes itself in several areas of innovation, including an embedded media player that allows a user to play a podcast directly from within search results. This removes the need to download a podcast before listening to it. Additionally, Podzinger lists excerpts from the podcast that its algorithms have converted using speech-to-text technology, displaying the time and context of each occurrence of the term that was entered into Podzinger’s search engine. These excepts are linked directly into the podcasts, enabling a user to click directly to the time(s) in the podcast where the term occurred. It’s easy to add a podcast to your subscription lists on either iTunes or Yahoo!. It’s also possible to create and save searches for specific terms, allowing you to add that feed to whichever RSS reader you use and keep up to date easily on that topic. Podzinger has added the ability to search within video content to its offering as well, making it rather useful for finding keywords within your favorite iFilm or YouTube content.
