Doherty says in this interview that viewership by RSS subscription leads to greatly increased video views, by a factor as high as 10X versus casual site visitors. He says effective video RSS provides a huge benefit to publishers. The site organizes some10,000 video RSS feeds into various categories and genres. I spoke with Sean at the Beet.TV Online Video Roundtable at the Adobe offices in San Francisco last month. -- Andy Plesser, Executive Producer
