Video: Accel Partner's Ping Li: Biggest Video Opportunity is Around Mobile

Posted: Updated:

Ping Li, a partner at powerhouse venture capital firm Accel Partners (investor in Facebook, others), says the big opportunity around video is mobile. 

He says the iPad will lead to the emergence of new sorts of video programming from the device's "use case."

While he is bullish on innovation around mobile, the one video sector he is bearish on is connected TV devices.

Accel is an investor in several online video-related companies including Brightcove, YuMe and comScore.

This segment is from the Beet.TV Online Video Roundtable held in June in the New York headquarters of MSNBC.com.   Moderating this section of the conversation is Peter Kafka, of All Things Digital MediaMemo.  The event was sponsored by YuMe.

You watch the conference right here.  This video session on Livestream has had nearly 400,000 viewer minutes since it went on demand on Livestream on June 22.  It is by far our most widely viewed live event.
