iPhone broadcasts live video

Wow, Flixwagon did what seemed impossible stream live video from an iPhone! Ken writes –

We’re happy to announce that our development team at the Flixwagon lab has successfully streamed the first-ever live high-quality video from unlocked iPhones to the web, using Flixwagon’s alpha client.

While we don’t condone or recommend unlocking iPhones, as avid iPhone users ourselves we wanted to experiment with ways to enable flixwagon on the iPhone, until the official SDK supports video. We’re going to continue working with the iPhone SDK in the future so we can offer this functionality to all users once video becomes a standard part of the iPhone.

After Flixwagon is installed on the phone, users can broadcast videos with one click to the flixwagon website. Videos can be watched live or saved for later. Also, videos can be embedded in blogs via our flixee widget or uploaded to the user’s YouTube account. Users can also easily determine which of their contacts to share each video with.

We’ll release the iPhone version to our Alpha testers in July. In the mean time, if you want to sign up for Flixwagon or get updates on future roll-outs and supported mobile devices, click here. Also, fell free to follow us on Twitter for continuous updates.

Update: Qik is going to have live streaming from the iPhone too, wow!

    I would love to connect an iPhone with streaming video and basic control software to a robotic platform, similar to this:

    only the ARM board would be replaced with an iPhone.

    Don’t Verizon phones already have streaming video through their mobile tv service? It would be great to stream from the web. I hope they have an easier MMS setup soon too
