Livestream for iPhone – FREE One Click Live Streaming from Safari
No need to download any application for iPhone – Viewers and Publishers alike.
Livestream, the leading live Internet video platform, today announced the immediate availability of its free service for streaming live to the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Using Livestream Procaster, publishers can stream live from their webcam, video camera or even broadcast their PC or Mac desktop. Livestream producers can start streaming live to the addressable iPhone and iPod Touch audience over 3G or Wi-Fi connections, with less than five minutes of setup.
Livestream is the first to offer a turn-key streaming service that uses the new H.264 HTTP live streaming functionality included in the native QuickTime player that Apple has pre-installed on the iPhone. By doing this, first of all Livestream doesn’t have to go through App store approval process. And second, the producers do not need to obtain iPhone App Store approval to launch their own iPhone live streaming channel, nor do their viewers need to install any application.
Streams are viewed using the iPhone’s Safari browser. Check out the embedded video below:
Streaming live to the iPhone requires less than five minutes to install. Producers simply download and install Livestream Procaster for the PC or Mac from www.livestream.com/procaster, connect their video camera or webcam and select iPhone 3G Quality before going Live.
User can view the live streams on their iPhone or iPod Touch by pointing their Safari browser to the channel they want to view at iphone.livestream.com. The screen looks as shown below when you view it on iPhone:
Enjoy… and let us know how do you feel this kind of service where no one has to download any app and no one has to go through any approval process. However everything remains free.
