Viva Livestreaming Video!

Who wants to test YouTube Live?

Seriously, how does this work? Setting up a live-streaming encoder is far more complicated than the old hangout system. We’ll be testing it out over the next few days and updating the relevant pages. For the record, we’re also big fans of Periscope. Kudos to the national parks on Periscope!
