The office of Britain’s Prime Minister has launched a online video channel called Number 10 to provide speeches, media events and archives.  We’ve embedded a segment below.

The site is powered by the U.S.-based Brightcove, a company that provides video publishing solutions to a number of publishers, governments, not-for-profits and companies.

On Friday, I spoke with Brightcove founder and CEO Jeremy Allaire via
Skype video.  Jeremy was in Cambridge, Massachusetts and I was in the
Beet studio in New York.

Jeremy explains how video distribution has moved beyond the purview of media companies.
