Down right now:

<<Maintenance

Yahoo! Live is an experimental release. We’ve experienced heavy traffic and are taking a breather to tune things up a bit.>>

TechCrunch already mentions stability issues, and also explains:

<<Yahoo Live allows anyone with a webcam to stream live video of themselves to a dedicated site. They call it “a platform for live video.” ...

Users can set up profiles for themselves and track how many people have watched them stream live, how many broadcasts they have made, and how long total they’ve been on the air. When you’re in a streaming session with others, up to five other people can be shown on your screen at the same time, one of which is the main presenter and four others who are simply in the session. Everyone else can be seen in a chat room associated with the session, and these sessions can also be embedded around the web.>>
