The rapid growth of online video as a viable advertising medium, with marketers seeking uniform publishing environments, is leading to the consolidation of many start-ups, says Ping Li, a partner with Accel Partners.
Accel is an investor in several online video companies, including Brightcove, Glam Media, Metacafe, and YuMe.
I interviewed Ping at last month's Beet.TV Online Video Roundtable at MSNBC.com.
Despite a very difficult 2009, the online video industry is growing quickly.
