YouTube, which has long been known as a place to share almost any kinds of videos you can think of, is dipping their toes into the live streaming pool with a limited trial of a new platform. Howcast, Next New Networks, Rocdketboom, and Young Hollywood are the four partners working with YouTube to test their new live streaming platform.

Streaming will be done directly into YouTube channels with only a webcam or external USB or FireWire connected camera. A "Live Comments" module will also be implemented for real time commenting on channels. Depending on how the testing goes, YouTube is looking to eventually expand this trial to a broader audience. An interactive schedule is available at the Source Link.
