Livestream launches new service for live streaming to iPhone, iPod

Uses new H.264 HTTP live streaming functionality

By CBR Staff Writer

Livestream has launched a free service for streaming live to the iPhone and iPod Touch. Users can stream live from their webcam, video camera or even broadcast their PC or Mac desktop using Livestream Procaster. The Livestream producers can start streaming live to the addressable iPhone and iPod Touch audience over 3G or Wi-Fi connections.

The company said that it offers a streaming service that uses the new H.264 HTTP live streaming functionality included in the QuickTime player that Apple has pre-installed on the iPhone.

The company has also provided a simple Representational State Transfer API for developers to integrate live streaming into their own iPhone websites or their own iPhone applications.

The Procaster application includes a free streaming encoder, meaning that no third party application or license needs to be purchased in order to stream live to the iPhone using Livestream, the company claims.

Max Haot, CEO and co-founder of Livestream, said: A key breakthrough is that the service doesn’t require any proprietary player or application to be installed on the iPhone. Producers are free to integrate the iPhone live stream with their own website, iPhone portal or iPhone application using the API provided.”
