Magg Video Aggregator

Category: Fun, Showcase

In the ever-popular effort to aggregate all content into a single source, the site Magg has been created. Magg takes videos from various websites (like YouTube, Google Video, Vimeo, etc) and pulls them all together into a single page for easy viewing.

The videos are pulled in via Ajax calls through a service called Dapper, “a new service which makes it easy to extract content from any website”. When each of the items is clicked on, it uses a Lightbox-style interface to show the video right there on the page. It also includes a search feature that dynamically pulls the information from each of the sites when you search (not just the cached information on the current page).

It’s a cool twist on the usual aggregator, with the Dapper technology making it adding a new video site as easy as adding its information into the Javascript arrays. It will be interesting to see what Dapper as to offer when it launches in August.
