MONACO — AOL Video, which includes original programming, has achieved considerable scale with the acquisition of Web video syndicator 5Min.  Today, comScore reported that AOL served some 410 million video views in October.

For an overview on the syndication strategy of AOL, we have excerpted this segment from a session on online video at the Monaco Media Forum which features Ran Harnevo, founder of 5Min and now SVP for Video at AOL. I moderated the session.

In this excerpt, he calls AOL the world's "largest curated Web video library."
