Web App Brings YouTube Live to the iPad | TV Everywhere | Scoop.it
YouTube relies on Flash to deliver live video, and Apple doesn’t support Flash on its mobile devices. Sources within YouTube told me live video will be served to mobile platforms eventually, but there are no immediate plans to extend the live platform to iOS. However, that doesn’t stop a new web app called YTLive that seeks to serve these live videos to iOS users.
Here is how it works: You go to YouTube Live on your iPad or iPhone, copy the link to the stream you want to watch. Then you go to YTLive.co, paste the link into the web app’s form, and the live feed starts playing. The video app also supports full-screen playback, but occasionally seems to have some buffering issues.
