Why does DDG search only Youtube for videos? Can't it at least include Vimeo, too? Thanks.

I see this post and the answer below is from 1 year and 3 months ago, and I don't know if the !bang commands existed back then. I havn't been using DDG for long at all, really just a couple of weeks, so I realize there's more to it than I understand.

Now when i search for <random stuff video>, or <random stuff !video> or even if i manually want to select videos from the drop down menu to the right of the search field and search for <random stuff>, I only get to pick youtube as results.

So anyway, the commands for selecting source manually works fine, like !vimeo !altavideo, but isn't there a way to include them all? Like the !video command shouldnt search youtube only, it should search for all videos. Or did I get something wrong?

Cheers!
