1. The service doesn’t work. Says “Yahoo! Live is an experimental release. We’ve experienced heavy traffic and are taking a breather to tune things up a bit.”
2. It doesn’t work on cell phones like Qik does.
3. It doesn’t record live sessions.
This is the best that Yahoo can do?
Compare to Qik. Which lets me start a live video in two clicks on my Nokia phone. And interact with a live chat room.
Or to Ustream. Or Justin.tv. Or BlogTV. Or Stickcam. Or Flixwagon.
Speaking of Qik, I’ve put up a few videos from the LIFT conference up on my page. They also professionally recorded each session and those are now up on the LIFT08 speech page with more coming soon. I’ll give you a list of what I found interesting. My favorite session so far was of Eric Favre, inventor of the Nespresso machine, but the video game sessions this morning were very good too.
