Brightcove inks distribution deal with Bebo, other social networks

The media companies that use Brightcove will now have access to the social networks' combined 300 million users.

Brightcove, the Internet-video syndication and services company, announced on Monday that video content from its customers will appear on social-networking sites: Bebo, Meebo, RockYou, Slide and Veoh.

Brightcove helps media companies display their video over the Internet and offers varying services for managing video including publishing, distribution and advertising.

CEO Jeremy Allaire has amassed a customer list that reads like a who's who of media conglomerates, such as CBS, HBO, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and 20th Century Fox.

The new deal means that Brightcove customers will have access to the combined 300 million monthly visitors of the social networks.
