YouTube has today started to test out a new live video streaming service, the trial has been launched with four media partners, and the trial will last for two days.
The four partners in the live video streaming test are Young Hollywood, Next New Networks, how-to guide Howcast and Rocketboom.
“This is just an initial trial, a first step,” said YouTube product manager Josh Siegel. “We’re going to look at a whole bunch of data about the performance of our new platform and then, based on that, make decisions about how we’ll open it up, with the goal of opening it up to all of our partners over time.”
YouTube will be monitoring the live video streaming trial to see how well the servers handle the service and how good the video looks, if it does well we could see more live video streaming from YouTube in the future.
