    abgreenfairySo you’ve never heard of Dik and the Legend of the Green Fairy? Well, I’m not surprised seeing as I just made it up.

    This post is about the video search engine Yubby. Yubby is from the Netherlands, where it goes by the name Dik, as in “Win een t-shirt
    Win met je Dik kanaal een I love Dik t-shirt! Het enige wat je hiervoor hoeft te doen is je eigen of favoriete kanaal op te geven op het forum.”
    (I have no idea what that means.)

    As a video search engine, Yubby lets you search 30 different video sites, the most recent ones being Hulu, TV.com, 5min, Flickr, and Streetfire.net. Sorry, there are no “I love Yubby” t-shirts. Today Yubby / Dik announced their newest feature, URL search.

    Here is a very brief one minute video from Remco Bron which explains this new feature:
