BlawgSearch adds multimedia searching, the new search engine for legal blogs I reported about here last month, has moved from “alpha” to “beta,” says its developer Tim Stanley of, with the addition of RSS feeds for searches, media icons for audio/video posts and a flash player for audio. Also, several hundred more blogs have been added to the index, with more being added regularly.

Better yet, Stanley has launched a companion search tool,, for searching for multimedia files such as podcasts on legal blogs. It searches the same blogs that are indexed by, but returns only those that have video or audio media files. It includes a podcast directory and a flash player for listening to the audio files.
