Wurl indexes the world’s best professional, high-quality online video. We operate proprietary server-based systems that traverse the web to identify the world’s best video series from among all the world’s online videos. We've developed a ranking algorithm, ChannelsRank, that is uniquely effective at surfacing high quality video from professional publishers in any language. Through this needle-in-a-haystack process, our servers are constantly searching among the +1 billion video series on the web with the goal of identifying the +100,000 best ones to add to our index.
Wurl Index contains detailed metadata from the web's best video “Series”. In our terminology, a series is a collection of videos, published over time with some regularity usually focused around a single topic. Examples of a Series include: a Channel on YouTube, a music artist’s video collection on Vevo, a collection of MLB clips on SI.com, full episodes of a French reality show, etc.
The Wurl Index includes over 20,000 video series in +50 languages including large collections in English, German, French, Korean, Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Danish, Portuguese (Brazil), and Chinese. Our indexing systems allow us to focus on specific languages and regions as customer requirements dictate.
The Index provides series and episode metadata including publish dates, video quality, language, rank, descriptions, thumbnail images and much more, enabling developers to create great applications and services for deployment in any country.
As of April 2013, our index included the following video series counts for our top 10 languages:
