Global Gaming (GGL), the world’s largest online communities for mainstream and avid gamers and 5min (www.5min.com), the Internet’s leading distributor of knowledge-based, professionally-produced instructional video, today announced a partnership to bring contextually relevant and dynamically delivered video segments to GGL’s social platforms. The partnership will leverage 5min’s VideoSeed platform and proprietary SmartPlayer™ to offer GGL Media’s more than 20 million monthly unique users a compelling feature to help them manage their gaming lives across thousands of game titles. With this partnership, 5min will provide the GGL communities with the most up-to-date videos relevant to the niche gaming culture to enhance and expand its already popular gaming destinations.

“The partnership between 5min and GGL further reinforces the benefits of the syndication economy,” said 5min CEO Ran Harnevo. “As the GGL network becomes populated with 5min’s expansive video library, the highly engaged and finely targeted audience of GGL will undoubtedly attract a new wave of content producers and brands to the various communities. The connection between destination, producer and advertiser is a dynamic relationship that 5min is determined to cultivate through various niche verticals, including gaming.”
