Picture 1We reported news via Business Insider that Google was in talks to acquire online video service Brightcove.

We are still awaiting comment from a Brightcove source about the deal but over the last few minutes, Dan Rayburn, an EVP for StreamingMedia.com and influential video veteran is stating the reports are untrue.

In a blog post, Rayburn says:

“I received a call from one of the parties involved in the Google/Brightcove rumor who would not talk on record but confirmed with me that the rumor that Google is buying Brightcove is in fact false. I won’t say which side, Google or Brightcove the employee is from, but it’s someone I trust.”

Business Insider reported the story after PBS MediaShift editor Mark Glaser made the claim on Twitter, citing a source with knowledge of the deal.
