Seesmic, the San Francisco-based startup devoted to online video conversations, has raised $6 million in a Series B round of funding led by Omidyar Network and Wellington Partners. See a video from Pierre Omidyar below:

In addition to its portal for webcam conversations, Seesmic also powers video comments across 1,500 sites and blogs, just launched a standalone player for threaded video conversations, and is producing its own video shows.
