Is YouTube working on streaming video?

“We’re working on a lot of interesting things,” Chad Hurley, one of the co-founders of YouTube told me yesterday when I met him and Steve Chen on the show floor and showed them Qik’s ability to stream video live from a cell phone (something that YouTube can’t do). Watch the rest of the interview here. I also ask them when they’ll do high def on YouTube.

Why were they at CES? To check out the new 150-inch Panasonic plasma. I tried to invite myself over to their house to watch the Super Bowl.

  3. See if they’re working on increasing the resolution/compressions of their damned videos. I thought for sure one of the first things Google would do with YT would be to increase the video quality. It’s HORRIBLE. It’s a shame YT won the online video fight a year ago because nearly all the other sites offer so much better quality.

  8. YouTube will have to utilize ON2 Technologies VP6-s for HD quality video and look for a new codec from ON2 called VP8…will change the video game for PC’s, TV’s and mobile devices.

    or they can just use H.264 since they are already using it and are in bed with Apple.

  12. [...] YouTube sneglar på ’streaming video’ Det går rykten om att YouTube planerar lansera strömmande TV genom sin webbplats. Om de lanserar tjänsten kommer flera nya småföretag dö ut (som också utvecklar den typen av innehåll) samt världens TV-jättar att darra. YouTube blir världens största TV-kanal när de lanserar. http://scobleizer.com/2008/01/09/is-youtube-working-on-streaming-video/ [...]
