<< YouTube, the world's largest video site, has pretty much been on the sidelines when it comes to broadcasting live video streams such as websites Ustream and Livestream.
But Monday, it's putting its toe in the water with a live video test that runs through Tuesday.
If it works, YouTube hopes to have much more live video in the future. >>
let me know when any of the following happens
* Youtube users can do this (partners, at least)
* It doesn't require flash to watch
* It doesn't require flash to broadcast (html5 specs are still unofficial)
Also, UK users should know that you now need a TV licence to watch streaming video on any website, if the program is being streamed at the same time as it is being broadcast in the UK.
This is a recent change to the law, to reduce the ways in which people can watch video without buying a licence from the government.
Talking about broadcasting without Flash, have you seen this demo of a Conversational Voice and Video support implemented in Webkit GTK+ (no plugin)?
