And it's about time: Google have just allowed YouTube to live stream to anyone with 100 or more subscribers. This is a great step, as it puts the smaller creators on nearly the same playing field as the big boys on YouTube.

YouTube previously reduced the number of subscribers required to 1,000 just three months ago, and have now reduced it to just 100. YouTube says that this feature is rolling out gradually, so don't feel bad if you don't see an "Enable" button for YouTube Live any time soon. Smaller creators are also getting some more benefits, with the ability to add custom thumbnail images to video, link out to online stores or other sites in their videos' annotations, and place viewers inside video playlists.
