Audio Search Engines
- Yahoo Audio Search: Yahoo's Audio search is fantastic, in my personal opinion. You can search for music, interviews, speeches, newscasts, podcasts, sound effects, and more.
- BlogDigger:a search engine for both audio and video content that is hosted at other sources.
- SingingFish: Search for audio files in a variety of formats, including MP3's or by categories (news, sports, entertainment, etc.).
- Lycos Multimedia Search: Click the radio button for "audio" and go to town. Includes a family friendly filter.
- AltaVista Audio Search: Allows searches in a variety of audio formats, but I especially like that you can choose how long you want the sample file to be at the "duration" pull-down menu.
- FindSounds:Searches the Web for sound effects (think screams, hoofbeats, etc.) or musical instrument samples. Make sure to check out theTypes page to get a really good idea of what you can find.
- Blinkx: Blinkx TV is basically a search engine that allows you to search for audio and video clips not only using keywords and phrases, but also content in the actual clips that you're looking for.
- Loomia: Loomia is a relatively smallish audio and video search engine that focuses mostly on podcasts and videos.
