Flixwagon Launches Live Widget and YouTube Distribution
Live mobile video service Flixwagon is announcing the launch of a blog/site widget today and a new YouTube distribution feature. The widget is named FliXee and allows you to embed a live stream of your video using the Flixwagon service. I listed Flixwagon as one of three apps that will change 2008.
The other update allows you to automatically upload the live videos to YouTube directly. This is a huge timesaver and could help videobloggers gain more traction by leveraging not just the live video but the ability to get in front of the large YouTube audience. What would be a great next step is to allow each user to select the video service they use.
What I’d like to see next is group live video. Allow me to load a panel of everyone broadcasting live from NYC or Chicago or around a topic.
Other players in the live video space include Kyte and Qik. Here is an example of what the FliXee widget would look like on a blog:
