Capitol Music Group is creating an online video viewing room for rapper MIMS and other artists that will allow multiple fans to view and simultaneously share comments in real time. The label is working with Meebo, an instant-messaging technology firm that creates these "rooms" which fans can access from multiple Web locations.

Fans can add the "rooms" of their favorite artists to the IM buddy list and invite friends to join in and chat while watching the video or other content posted.

The MIMS room will be available from the artist's Web site, MySpace page and on the meebo.com portal. Other artists developing Meebo rooms include Mandy Moore, Katharine McPhee, Kelly Rowland and Korn.
