Ustream intros Live Broadcaster app for iPhone

updated 09:30 am EST, Wed December 9, 2009

Requires iPhone 3GS

Video site Ustream has launched Live Broadcaster, a third free application for the iPhone. Whereas earlier titles have only been capable of viewing or recording video, the new app generates live streams, said to be a first for the iPhone. Feeds operate over both 3G and Wi-Fi; alternately, users can record video and upload it later.

Recorded clips can be shared with sites beyond Ustream including YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. During a live stream, users can send out Twitter notifications and/or GPS positioning, while also monitoring chat, viewer count and simple yes/no polls. Resolution can be adjusted as necessary.

The app requires iPhone 3.1 firmware, and either an iPhone 3G or 3GS. Video recording is typically only possible on a 3GS.

    Unstable website behavior

    Seems like a great product, unfortunately something fishy is going on with their website (maybe Flash related) that has been crashing both my Safari and Firefox browsers all day. My experience tells me to stay away from services that make my Mac that unstable.

    works on 3G iPhone

    "As only the 3GS is capable of video recording however, the app is effectively useless on a 3G."

    Not true. It works just fine on the iPhone 3G, allowing you to record video and either save it to the phone or stream live to the web, just like the 3GS.
