YouTube Testing Out Live Streaming Platform

Posted Sep 14, 2010

YouTube has been working closely with partners to provide live streaming services for U2 concerts, White House speeches, and the Indian Premier League. As of 8AM PST yesterday, YouTube began a limited trial of a new live streaming platform. Live streaming is integrated directly into YouTube channels. The only thing that broadcasters need is a webcam or external USB/FireWire camera. Live Comments is a feature of YouTube’s Live Streaming feature as well. On the YouTube blog, you will be able to see what will be live streaming during the test phase. [YouTube Blog]
