LOS ANGELES — DailyMotion, the video sharing site started in France, has dramatically grown to be a global powerhouse, second only to YouTube, according Joy Marcus, who heads U.S. operations for the site.

I sat down with Joy earlier this week at Digital Hollywood. She explained that DailyMotion has a channel strategy, with contents organized around various interests and groups.  She likens it to a cable operator who offers specific channels.

Amazing growth.
