Music search engine SeeqPod was sued off the interwebs last year, but its founder Kasian Franks is returning with a new idea, which aims to offer a less litigation-baiting search-and-play site for music videos. It’s called Mimvi, and it’ll pull in videos from YouTube, Vevo, MTV, DailyMotion, Vimeo and other sites, and offer them to users with a recommendation engine. “When Mimvi releases out of alpha, every action that a user takes — a simple thumb up or thumb down, next or previous video — will immediately have effect on the entire recommendation engine (whereas other engines just affect a few layers), both for that user and other users too,” the company’s engineering VP Felix Chan tells Epicenter. The company is currently in privatae alpha, and plans to go public late this month.
