YouTube Live now streaming select partners in real time

Not content with limiting its dominance in streaming uploaded videos, YouTube is now ready to take on competitors like Justin.TV and Ustream. The new YouTube Live service is being rolled out to select YouTube partners and will enable real-time broadcasting. In its official announcement, Google states that "The goal is to provide thousands of partners with the capability to live stream from...

YouTube begins trial of live streaming platform, crowd goes wild

From the oh dear Lord, it's about time department: YouTube, over the next two days, is conducting a trial of its new live streaming platform. This first test will see live content streamed by four of its partners: Howcast, Next New Networks (Barely Political), Rocketboom and Young Hollywood. Admittedly I haven't heard of any of them -- and I'm more interested in watching the season finale of...

Windows Live Sync dies, zombie Live Mesh is reborn

When Microsoft revealed the first beta version of Windows Live Essentials, a number of Live Mesh users were a little miffed. In addition to dropping the name, Microsoft dialed back the free storage space from 5GB to 2GB. Today, however, they've announced that they're going to take a mulligan and un-re-name Live Sync. It's going to be called Live Mesh after all, and more importantly you're also...

Universal Installer puts Linux live CDs on USB flash drives -- with persistent storage

I play around with a lot of Linux distributions and while I typically just virtualize them using an app like VirtualBox or VMware, sometimes it's nice to be able to test them on bare metal. A nice, pain-free way to do that is with Pendrive Linux's Universal USB Installer. The tool's actually been around for a while, but you may not have heard of it -- it's not talked about as much as other...

Windows Live Essentials beta now available for download

Microsoft's new suite of Live apps is ready to rock -- in beta form, at any rate. If you're interested in checking out the new releases (a few of which are actually quite good), head on over to the Live Essentials beta download page and grab the slim installer. Alternatively, if you'd like to go with the offline installer (which weighs in at just over 100MB), you'll find them here: As it...

Windows Live Sync 2011 offers slick peer-to-peer sync and remote control

Windows Live 2011 is arriving soon, but some of you -- myself included -- may have gotten your hands on the download a little early. It was, after all, like every other Microsoft product, predictably leaked to torrent sites over the weekend. Live Sync has evolved from Live Mesh, and if you speak to just about anyone who used Mesh they'll tell you it's awesome. Sync now integrates with SkyDrive...

SkyDrive simple viewer quickly shows your SkyDrive WebDAV paths

A few weeks ago I shared a (fairly) simple way to map local drive letters to your Live SkyDrive shares. It's a nice -- albeit somewhat slow -- way to access and manipulate your files in the cloud. In my tutorial, I used Microsoft Office 2010's save to web functionality to find the URLs I needed. As it turns out, there's a much easier way: SkyDrive Simple Viewer. Extract the .zip file to a...

Microsoft Live Messenger app for iPhone [EXPOSED]

Where do you find the largest iTunes user base? On Windows. A large number of those users own an iPod touch or iPhone, and a similarly large number still use Live Messenger for chatting... so it really wasn't a surprise when news get around late last year that Microsoft was working on a Live Messenger app for the iPhone. Now it looks like the app could be arriving soon. NeoWin's Tom Warren has...

Use Office 2010 to map a local drive letter to your free 25GB Live SkyDrive

Live SkyDrive is an awesome service. 25GB of web storage for free? Yeah, that sounds good to me. Sure, the 50MB per file limit is a little bit of a downside but it's still a great place to store documents, music, and photos. Heck, if you tell an app like 7zip to chunk big files up into 50MB pieces you can store whatever the heck you want. If only there was a way to access your SkyDrive storage...

Justin.tv gets an iPhone app, but no broadcasting capabilities

Streaming video has been around for a while on the iPhone, with players like Ustream and Qik launching apps that allow you to, both, view and broadcast live video. With its new iPhone app, Justin.tv is just about the last live streaming service to make the jump to mobile. The thing is, it hasn't caught up to Ustream and Qik yet: you can only use it to watch, not broadcast, your own video. Both...

DLS @ SXSW - Brown Paper Tickets

I happened to use Brown Paper Tickets a couple of months ago to buy tickets for a local comedy show. It was just as simple and easy as any other ticketing system I've used, certainly simpler (and faster) than Ticketmaster. But the real magic happens if you are putting a show together. Brown Paper Tickets has the lowest transaction fees and doesn't collect a dime if you don't sell any tickets....

Qik iPhone app can finally stream live video over 3G

When the Qik iPhone app first came out back in August, it was hardly the mobile streaming powerhouse Qik fans had been hoping for. Due to Apple's restrictions at the time, Qik had to release a live video streaming app minus the "live". The policy against live streaming has been lifted now, with apps like Ustream Broadcaster leading the way, so Qik is back with Qik Live, the app they should have...

EyeTV brings streaming TV to the iPhone over 3G ... with a web app?!

Apple seems to be loosening up its rules about streaming video over 3G via iPhone apps, allowing streaming players and broadcasters like Ustream and Qik into the App store. EyeTV -- a streaming TV provider -- isn't even taking the chance of rejection, though. Instead, they've launched an updated web app which allows you to watch TV over 3G using the iPhone's built-in MobileSafari browser. The...

Microsoft's Mobicast stitches mobile video streams together in real time

As we start to get more of our news and event coverage from eyewitnesses with cellphone cameras, it makes sense to look at ways to get more information out of existing technology. That's what Microsoft Labs in Egypt has done with Mobicast, a system for stitching together multiple mobile video streams together in real time. Because the frame rate on most mobile video is very low, it's possible to...

Justin.tv to launch pay-per-view service

No, not that kind of pay-per-view -- well, OK, a little of the kind of thing you've come to expect from Justin.tv broadcasters. No, this is actually news: Justin.tv is going to offer the option of pay-per-view for its massive army of broadcasters. It might sound like fairly trivial news, but it's actually huge: Justin.tv has some 800,000 users, with 40,000 of those being active broadcasters....
