AOL has tapped Brightcove’s cloud services to managing transcoding for AOL videos, meeting a demand for immediate files in multiple file formats, Brightcove announced today.

The encoding capabilities at Brightcove has come via last year’s acquisition of San Francisco-based Zencoder.   Last year at IBC in Amsterdam we spoke Zencoder c0-founder of John Dahl about the the growing demand for cloud-based video trancoding services.  We have republished that video today.
