MySpace launches streaming video service for mobile phones
MySpace Mobile (m.myspace.com) attracts around 10 million visitors per month, MySpace says. For all those visitors, the popular social networking website will soon offer video content that’s accessible directly via their mobile phones.
In order to offer the best-possible mobile video streaming experience, MySpace has teamed up with RipCode, a Dallas-based provider of Web and mobile video infrastructure solutions.
Those who visit MySpace from their handsets will be able to browse through the website’s extensive video library and view user-generated video content, as well as premium content from College Humor, The Onion, National Geographic, TMZ, National Hockey League and so on.
The MySpace mobile video initiative will be in beta for the beginning.
Now word yet on when exactly the service will be launched, but MySpace says that its users should better have a data plan with their carrier in order to avoid excessive fees (since streaming video on a phone means a high amount of data is transferred).
