Investors are game

Mobile game video platform Kamcord just raised another $15 million in funding: Kamcord’s Series B is led by Japanese game publisher GungHo, with Tencent and Wargaming also participating. Kamcord allows players of mobile video games to record their gameplay, and more than 1.3 million players have already shared more than 25 million videos over the platform. The new funding comes just seven months after the company raised a $7.1 million Series A, and brings the total amount of money raised by Kamcord to $25 million.

Barry Diller’s IAC wants to cash in on the online video boom: IAC is putting CollegeHumor on the block, according to a Fortune.com report. IAC is reportedly looking to make $100 million with the sale, after acquiring CollegeHumor for $20 million eight years ago. However, CollegeHumor isn’t the only comedy site looking for a buyer. FunnyOrDie and the Onion are also on the market, with FunnyOrDie reportedly looking to make as much as $300 million, and the Onion asking potential buyers for $100 million as well.

Adding Chromecast support does make a lot of sense for Vimeo: A recent report estimated that the streaming stick accounted for 20 percent of all streaming device sales during the first nine months of this year.
