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. Despite its emphasis on interaction, Seesmic is focused on asynchronous video posts rather than live streaming, as CEO Loic Le Meur explained when he was a guest on The GigaOM Show.
The company previously raised $6 million in Series A funding from Atomico and a long list of individuals.
