    YouTube will Offer Live Streaming

    Google announced that their streaming-video company YouTube would begin a limited trial of a new live streaming platform in conjunction with four of their partners: Howcast, Next New Networks, Rocketboom and Young Hollywood.

    The press release explains like this:

    “This new platform integrates live streaming directly into YouTube channels;
    all broadcasters need is a webcam or external USB/FireWire camera. Included
    in the test is a “Live Comments” module which lets you engage with the
    broadcaster and the broader YouTube community. For the purpose of the trial,
    this offering will only be available today and tomorrow. Based on the
    results of this initial test, we’ll evaluate rolling out the platform more
    broadly to our partners worldwide.”

    There are several live broadcasts going on as we speak.
