Let Google index your media fragments
Current multimedia applications in Web 2.0 have generated a massive amount of multimedia resources, but most search results for multimedia resources still focus on the whole re-source level. Media fragments expose the inside content of multimedia resources for annotations, but they are yet fully explored and indexed by major search engines. W3C has published Media Fragment 1.0 as a standard way to describe media fragments on the Web. In this proposal, we make use of Google's Ajax Application Crawler to index media fragments represented by Media Fragment URIs. Each media fragment with related annotations will have an individual snapshot page, which could be indexed by the crawler. Initial evaluation has shown that the snapshot pages are successfully fetched by Googlebot and we are expecting more media fragments to be indexed using this method, so that the search for multimedia resources would be more efficient.

Abstract

Current multimedia applications in Web 2.0 have generated a massive amount of multimedia resources, but most search results for multimedia resources still focus on the whole re-source level. Media fragments expose the inside content of multimedia resources for annotations, but they are yet fully explored and indexed by major search engines. W3C has published Media Fragment 1.0 as a standard way to describe media fragments on the Web. In this proposal, we make use of Google's Ajax Application Crawler to index media fragments represented by Media Fragment URIs. Each media fragment with related annotations will have an individual snapshot page, which could be indexed by the crawler. Initial evaluation has shown that the snapshot pages are successfully fetched by Googlebot and we are expecting more media fragments to be indexed using this method, so that the search for multimedia resources would be more efficient.
