Brad Greenspan, the founder of MySpace, has acquired a majority stake in Flurl.com, an independent video search website, which indexes over 1000 online video sites. With this acquisition, LiveUniverse intends to begin discussions with potential strategic, financial, and content partners focused in the online video space. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Flurl does not solely rely on RSS feeds but also indexes media sites through manual HTML pattern matching. This is designed to allow more detailed and accurate results. In addition to video, Flurl also indexes images, audio, and flash content.
