Web Video Syndicator 5MIN Expands to News, Readies Publisher Self-Service Platform

5MIN, the syndicator of “how to” Web videos, is expanding to news, starting with gossip news, says CEO Ran Hanarnevo in this video interview.5MIN syndicates content from various publishers including Scripps, to sites around the web, using a custom video player which resides on distribution sites and is dynamically updated when new content is published.5MIN sells ads around these videos and splits revenue with the publisher and the destination site.Keeping up with increased demand for Web video, 5MIN will soon launch a “self-service” interface for Web sites to customize their videos feed.Ran was a panelist at the Beet.TV Online Video Roundtable at MSNBC on Tuesday.Andy Plesser, Managing Editor
