MySpace has partnered with RipCode to give mobile users access to MySpace videos. The content will be available at MySpace’s mobile site, m.myspace.com, which currently generates around 3 billion monthly page views from 10 million users.

Video will work on the iPhone, T-Mobile G1, BlackBerry Bold and BlackBerry Storm devices, among others. All user uploaded videos (meaning videos that a user has uploaded, as opposed to all videos uploaded by all users) and most premium content will be available.

The new feature will use RipCode’s on demand video transcoding service. Videos are transcoded only when requested, into whatever combination of codecs, bit rates and resolutions an individual handset requires.

YouTube has offered similar functionality at m.YouTube.com since early this year.
