Find Online Videos at One Site

clicker_logo.pngClicker.com allows for you to search for videos based off of title, subject, or type of video (movie, tv, online series, etc). It has been dubbed the" TV Guide of Internet Video" . What’s nice about this site is that it gives you links to all other sites where the videos are hosted. You can create a playlist or share the video links with Twitter, Facebook, Digg, or StumbleUpon. There’s also a section for videos tagged for education. The site is free and you do not need an account to use it to search. To learn more or to start using the site, click on the link below:
