Talk about a one destination online video search engine, and nothing matches the definition better than Mudclo.com. It is among the technological innovations that have set the name of the African continent ringing across the globe in recent times.
Mudclo is a video search engine founded by a 19 year old Ghanaian; Gabriel Opare. It is a spectacular hybrid online service which collates results from many sources across the web. To be precise, it allows search and streaming of video content from multiple web destinations in one place. The website is described as a metasearch engine because of its ability to combine the search powers of three of the most popular video hosting sites; Youtube, Vimeo and Daily Motion.
Mudclo ranks among the few video search engines in the world that do not serve as video hosting sites. The startup currently has a twitter following of more than 13,000, plus other social media pages.
Although Mudclo is set to face fierce competition from global stream-disabled engines like Jayhap and stream-enabled engines like Microsoft’s AOL Video, its current ratings showcase it as the most promising video search engines in the world at the moment. It has joined the numerous uprising African startups that has been on the globally competitive market, with a promise of revolutionizing the African continent tech-wise.
Moreover, with the rate at which it is being talked about across the globe, coupled with its unprecedented advantages, Mudclo has the prospect of becoming the best video search engine in the world.
About Gabiel Opare, Founder of Mudclo
Gabriel Opare is a second year student of Sociology at the University of Ghana. Despite being a social science student, Gabriel has such a deep interest and appreciation for technology; an ambition which has driven him into web and graphic design, eventually leading to the birth of Mudclo.
Gabriel actually began building the video search engine in 2015, but it became officially functional this year. According to the 19-year-old CEO, “Mudclo’s mission is to ‘create an online garment that is readily worn by Africans and at the same time will thrill non-Africans”.
However, the Mudclo tean still has a long way to go in bringing the search engine to perfection. A lot of finishing touches such as fixing bugs, introducing new features and so on are still outstanding. But having a teenager with fresh ideas as its CEO, anything appears to be possible for the rising startup.
