Yahoo! Video: Conduct Very Specific Searches

Yahoo! Video has an advanced search box, but it is very limited. These search operators will help quickly hone in on the video you're looking for. Here are some real world examples:

Find a Lonelygirl15 video with a filesize greater than 10 megabytes (convert to bytes with the calculator here)
lonelygirl15 filesize:>10485760

Find a 9/11 video longer than 4 minutes (convert minutes into seconds)
9/11 duration:>240

Find a Naruto video that has an aspect ratio of 16:9 (16 divided by 9 times 100 equals 177)
naruto aspect:177

For 4:3 ratio [(4/3)*100=133]
naruto aspect:133

Find a video with the title "harvest" in the filename

Find a video that is linked to by a page with the title "harvest"

Find a Keith Olbermann video that is linked to by a .org domain
keith olbermann fromtld:org

Find a Hurricane Katrina video hosted on a .com domain

Find a South Park video modified before January 1, 2005 (Convert a Date/Time to a Unix timestamp, which is number of seconds since January 1, 1970)
