YouTube streaming Live beta channel

YouTube has launched its “Live” channel, offering streaming video in 320p (for now) on a dedicated “Live” video page. There’s lots of potential in the Live channel, (think concerts, video phone chatting, conferencing), but for now only certain YouTube users will be allowed stream content in the beta mode.

However, we’ve found watching Live feeds is a bit difficult at this time. We’re not sure if it’s the source of the video or the Live channel itself. We tried to check out several feeds from the “Live Now” category: “Sean Long the Green Lant-NERD”; HappyCabbie’s Live Balloon Show”; and “Will this stream finally save?” All feeds wouldn’t work even after repeated tries.

One of the titles under “Live Now” wasn’t viewable even if the stream was working. The Indian Premier Cricket League tournament was inaccessible due to regional restrictions – so Live, really isn’t Live after all.

You can bet Google will get this thing running in due time. But, given the current issues it might be a while before higher “HD” quality will be available as an option. Check out what’s up on YouTube Live for yourself.
