San Francisco 3/07/2007 01:00 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)

Pageflakes Ltd. (www.pageflakes.com), the community-driven personalized homepage, today announced the launch of the most comprehensive collection of universal video widgets available. These video Flakes – small, movable versions of all of your favorite video sites that you can arrange on your personal homepage – are now available to search and display videos from popular sites such as YouTube, Google Video, Revver, Metacafe, Daily Motion, Grouper, and others, including broadcast network sites. Pageflakes’ video Flake collection allows anyone to easily create customized web pages, within seconds, that display continuously updated videos from virtually all sources and can easily be shared publicly or with friends. Video Flakes can also be combined on your Pageflakes personalized homepage with thousands of other Flakes for photos, music, podcasts and more for a truly customized "mashup" experience. Like all Pageflakes Flakes, universal Flake portability lets you put the new video Flakes on virtually any other web page.

The most powerful new video Flake is the Pageflakes Universal Video Search Flake. By simply typing in a subject or keyword into the Flake’s search box, the Flake will instantly find and display matching videos from nearly all Internet video websites. The resulting videos are featured in an innovative checkerboard display of thumbnail images, allowing you to quickly choose, click and play the video you want to watch. New matches are automatically and continuously updated right in the Flake, displaying fresh new videos every time you view or visit your page.

Pageflakes is also introducing several new video Flakes for video sites including Google Video, Revver, Metacafe, and Daily Motion. These Flakes allow you to focus your video search on your favorite individual site, similar to the previously available YouTube Flake, and watch these videos right on your Pageflakes personalized homepage.

"The Pageflakes community of users is passionate about personalizing their homepages with videos. Now everyone can add, search and watch the largest collection of videos on the web, all on their Pageflakes page," said Dan Cohen, CEO of Pageflakes. "It’s never been easier to create a personal homepage that features videos from all over the web - even if you’re new to Pageflakes. Combined with the thousands of other available Flakes, the possibilities for personalized video pages are truly endless. You can even share your video ‘mashup masterpiece’ with your friends."
