Justin.tv wants to give Android live streaming a go, treading in the footsteps laid out by Ustream and Qik to deliver their own take on broadcasting video on the fly from your handset. The app launching today aims to make the process as simple and painless as possible — the main interface is made up of only three buttons. You hit record to begin broadcasting a video, press share to throw up a link to Facebook and Twitter that will also access an archive of the session after it has ended, and use the chat button to communicate with other watching your stream.
While the fundamental service offers nothing groundbreaking compared to what is already available for Android, optimizations in video streaming promise the best quality live feeds. Hardware video encoding for improved performance and battery life as well as bitrate that adjusts on the go according to your signal strength should provide a smooth and clear video experience. You can see a comparison example and get all the details in the video below.
Why does he sound sooo angry?
What’s up with the guy’s voice in that video? He sounds so angry! Almost makes me NOT want to try their app….
He’s not angry, just determined …
Terrible attempt at Mr. Moviephone. I’ll give it a go tho.
Just tried it out. Great quality and easy to use and setup. Hero 2.2.
tried it, like it, pretty sweet being able to share on FB
Sounds Like He’s Usings His “Mans Man” Voice…..
But Seing The Comparising, The Quality Is Really Good. Looks Like I’ll Give Justin.tv A Go.
wow thats a first with the voice sounds like the guy is taking a shit or something
So far I didn’t see any features that the Ustream broadcaster didn’t give.
I didn’t try to compare quality though.
How about a client so we can WATCH justin.tv videos without relying on the crappy flash player?
That is a pretty creepy voice over…. “Download this app or die!!”
brought to you by duffman, oh yeah!
On the EVO it does not give you the option to use the front facing camera… what is the point of this??? If I want to chat and let them see me it is not possible with out going back and fourth…
just my 2 cents
So can you not watch Justin.tv streams with this app? I would rather do that than stream with it.
Qik is not anywhere near “live”, and this justin app has increasing latency too. Why are you not mentioning Bambuser where you can broadcast and it actually is live?
I would rather watch Justin.tv rather than stream as well. The voice over on this video is just plain awful. HUGE FAIL.
BAAAAAAADDD-AAAAAAASSSSSSS! Cant wait to Livestream my dog humping my leg!
Neither can I phonedog. neither can i.
now you’re a man, a man, man, man.
now you’re a man, a manly, manly man.
What makes a man, is it the power in his hands?
Is it his quest for glory?
That guy blatantly wants to dub action movies!
Wow….that dude sounds like a cult leader. You better get this justintv app. Or he is coming after you.
What makes a man, is it the woman in his arms?
just cause she has big titties?
or is it the way, he fights every day?
No, it’s probably the titties.
Hahaaaaa! He does sound angry! Wish there was a way you could watch live streaming football games with the mobile app.
