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.
