OK, this is cool.
A few seconds after I downloaded the free app “Livestream Podcaster” I was streaming live video from the AltamontCowork public computer to Facebook!
I have tried Justin TV and Ustream as our “Virtual Window” but both dropped the calls, after awhile, within a few minutes. Hmmmm, I wonder if it was Comcast limiting me?
Sooo, I’m trying Livestream. Looks like the same software as Justin TV and Ustream and I still have Comcast, so I’m pretty sure, one way or another, the calls will start dropping. No matter, this is cool anyway.
One really nice feature is you can give a live presentation using slides and video and audio to a Facebook audience. See picture below.
Ads interrupt the video stream every few minutes.
I won’t be doing this long term, but, as a cool experiment (and blog entry), it was fun playing with it.
The world of video communication (either interactive or one way streaming) is moving at lightspeed right now and I am seeing nearly all the predictions, hopes, and dreams I had for this technology the past 20 years coming to fruition! WhooHoo!
Now all I need to do is find something that will come true now….so I can live to see it.
Help us raise awareness of unsafe teen driving and the need for parents to enforce curfews.
