Y! Live

Continuing with recent Yahoo news, the just-launched Y! Live is a new webcasting community similar to justin.tv or Stickam. Both Y! Live and Stickam allow you to take part in sharing video as a visitor in a broadcaster’s channel, while justin.tv does not. However, I believe Y! Live’s experience is better than any of those competitors. The Y! Live developer API allows you to go beyond search like justin.tv– you can actually mashup video streams. (Stickam doesn’t even have an API.) The site is billed as a “experimental release” so it’ll be interesting to see how Y! Live will evolve. More on the launch is available on their blog. I’ll be experimenting with the site by going live when I can, stop by and say hi!
