MySpace launches mobile video test – no iPhone

MySpace Mobile has launched an international beta test of its new video delivery service for mobile phones, though iPhone support is not part of the package.

MySpace is working with the video boffins at RipCode on the solution, which makes video content from the social networking site available to video enabled mobile devices.

The MySpace Mobile site (m.myspace.com) receives approximately three billion worldwide page views per month from more than 10 million monthly unique users, the company said.

John Faith, vice president and general manager of Mobile for MySpace, said, “Video is a natural next step for us in mobile. MySpace will continue to grow our video library as we increase delivery channels in order to keep pace with our users’ accelerating desire for video consumption.”

MySpace uses RipCode’s On-Demand Video Transcoding technology to optimize mobile video for several different handsets.
