YouTube adds live streams

YouTube is trialling live streaming this week which allows broadcasters to stream content on the video platform.

All broadcasters require is a webcam or camera attached to their PC, although the trial is currently only being tested with YouTube partners such as Rocketboom and Howcast.

If the trial is a success, the Google-owned video website will consider rolling out the platform to other broadcasters in the near future, bringing it into competition with streaming websites such as USTREAM.
