This week we will be retiring the Video Search functionality, which has been available to IMDb users as a Beta/experimental program.

Over the years, the usage of Video Search Beta has been dwindling and it is now only used by a very small fraction of our users. 

We have decided to retire this feature and invest our development efforts in improving existing features and adding new ones to IMDb.  Users can continue to access all the videos on the site through the Title, Name and Video Gallery pages.

Hi,

I've been searching the web, libraries and more to find this specific movie title. The production is from around the 90s. Not an exquisite plot. It is important though because my wife and I first met while this movie was playing on a commercial tv station that evening. To assist my search I have a short video fragment / some screendumps. So far there is no result.

Can you or can IMDb.com in anyway help me? It would be excellent.

Regards,
Sergio

Sergio,
Not really the thread to ask this question but for the sake of an answer, similar questions are often asked. The answer is best given by Dan Dassow:

IMDb's Get Satisfaction site is intended to help with problems people encounter with IMDb's web site and for suggestions on how to make IMDb better.
I recommend that you post your question on IMDb's I Need To Know message board.
http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000001/threads/
According to the board's charter:
Have a movie/TV/entertainment-related question that you need help answering? Post your question here, and let other IMDb users help you find the answer (edit your post to add the word  to your subject line where appropriate)."Solved"

There are a number of very knowledgeable users on that board who should be able to answer your question.

This board is specifically for "things you need to know" about film and tv.
Dan would have told you this himself but I'm guessing he will be busy all day today Googling stats about North American international footballers and also pouring over all the mathematical possibilities in group G...

Bob, since the video search is being retired the thread is more than applicable

And since w're not taking about an average search all options including (inter)national boards are on the list. In the meanwhile we are running out of time meaning opinionleaders from within the business are more than preferred resources

Sergio,
I meant no offence by that comment. I would still suggest the board I pointed out, at least one of the regulars there may have your answer.....
