Watchmojo.com: 50 million video streams served

Techvibes profiled Montreal startup WatchMojo.com last November when they announced that they had served their 33,333,333rd million video stream. WatchMojo.com’s content consists of 5,000 professionally-produced, ad-friendly premium videos on Automotive, Education, Fashion, Film, Food, Health, Music, Politics & Economy, Space, Sports, Technology, Travel and Video Game categories.

Techcrunch picked up on their story today and reported on WatchMojo.com hitting 50 million stream mark.

WatchMojo.com, a startup that produces professional videos and then syndicates them to social networking and media sites, has streamed more than 50 million videos since its launch in 2006. WatchMojo.com’s content is distributed to Hulu, MySpace, TV.com, Yahoo!, and YouTube as well as newspaper sites. (The Montreal-based startup also produces the business tech blog HipMojo).

WatchMojo’s entertainment videos range from informational content (think About.com or Wikipedia) to parodies to evergreen faux newscasts (we’ve embedded two at the bottom of this post). The site has published close to 5,000 videos on a variety of topics including business, fashion, food, green living, health, technology and politics. Largely in English, its library includes multi-lingual and closed captioned videos as well.

Congrats to WatchMojo.com on hitting 50 million – at their current pace is 200 million streams achievable before the end of the year?

Everytime we publish our Startup Indexes, a few great web startups don’t get the kudos they deserve as the majority of their reach is through syndication networks. Toronto’s b5media (currently #1 on the Toronto Startup Index) comes to mind as we only measure traffic to their corporate homepage rather that the total traffic of their 300+ blogs .

Another startup that deserves a mention is Montreal’s WatchMojo.com (currently #7 on the Montreal Startup Index). Today they announced that they served their 33,333,333rd million video stream in October and it turns out that less than 5% of those streams were served up on hte WatchMojo.com site.

WatchMojo.com’s content consists of 5,000 professionally-produced, ad-friendly premium videos on Automotive, Education, Fashion, Film, Food, Health, Music, Politics & Economy, Space, Sports, Technology, Travel and Video Game categories. Through a mix of advertising revenue share partnerships and licensing agreements, WatchMojo.com has also managed to develop a business model in the otherwise murky landscape of online video, where user-generated content generates the vast majority of video streams but has thus far failed to win over advertisers.
