Rob Greenlee, host of Web Talk, speaks with Bart Feder, President and CEO of FeedRoom. Feder tells us about the current FeedRoom operations and the changes the company has gone through since it began five years ago.

The FeedRoom is one of the Internet's largest profitable streamer with over 1 million streams per day. Bart explains the FeedRoom vision for future major media video distribution platforms via download and streaming to PCs and mobile devices. Bart also explains how the FeedRoom works with a growing list of major corporations and media networks like NBC to take video online and make money from the content. He also talks about how he sees digital video changing the way we consume TV-like content and how spot advertising is sold against the millions of streams the FeedRoom delivers every day.

The FeedRoom was co-founded by Jon Klein, who is now the President of CNN North America. Klein turned over the company to longtime FeedRoom Executive Bart Feder after four years of operation.
