This new site, Movieclips.com, has signed licensing agreements with six of the major Hollywood studios (Fox, MGM, Paramount, Sony, Universal and Warner Bros), so that it can offer 12,000 two-minute clips from a diverse collection of movies.
It is a free, ad-supported site. The clips can be searched by title, genre, actor and dialogue. They are linked to third-party sites where consumers can rent or purchase each title.
The Movieclips.com player can be embedded in social networks such as Facebook and MySpace and shared on blogs, Twitter and personal sites, allowing viewers to exchange the clips.
