Dailymotion, the giant video-sharing site, has a syndication pact with MSN and other top publishers to use its embeddable player on a revenue-sharing basis, says Roland Hamilton, who heads U.S. operations for the Paris-based company, in this interview with Beet.TV.
Hamilton explains that the new program will allow publishers to surface up to some 2 million pieces of premium content onto their sites and share incremental revenue.
For content owners uploading onto Dailymotion, this could represent wider distribution and income.
