Rippol is an video search engine for searching and rating various TV programs and movies online.
The Idea Behind Rippol
Rippol is a straight-forward search engine for finding television programs and movies online, with searches broken into various categories for searching. From my experimentation with it I found it to be a comprehensive engine yet still a work in progress that could use a little tweaking.
What Rippol is About
According to the site, Rippol works based on how users view and rate films, with content changing dynamically per user preferences. According to the site:
“Every video you watch, rate and review affects The Butterfly Effect Network which changes the order you and others see content in real-time. The Butterfly Effect Network cross references videos similar to what you like and have watched with the habits and opinions of your friends and demographics.”
It’s a clever idea, namely the idea of cultivating similar videos based on what others are doing, in addition to your own preferences. Makes me wonder, though, if your tastes are completely eclectic, are really going to find many similar cross references?
Getting Started with Rippol
Registration is required to get started, either via Facebook or Twitter account, or you can just create a Rippol account, which is what I did.
