Qik rolls out live video streaming for Google Android

Summary: My T-Mobile G1 is my preferred T-Mobile device and it just gets better and better all the time with more developers supporting the Google Android platform. The latest software/service available for the Android devices is Qik mobile video streaming application. iPhone users cannot say, "There's an app for that." since Apple still does not allow video streaming with Qik. I have been using Qik a bit lately on my Nokia N97 because it allows me to simultaneously upload videos I take to Facebook and YouTube, as well as my Qik site. The Qik Android alpha requires a device with firmware 1.5 (aka Cupcake) and a microSD card.

Features in the current alpha release include:

  • Live streaming with live chat
  • Share videos to Twitter, Facebook, YouTube
  • Ability to set your videos to Private / Public with a touch of a button
  • Add Title / Description to the video prior

That is quite a feature list for an alpha release and I am quite pleased with the support for Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube right out of the gate. I am downloading it right now onto my T-Mobile G1 to give it a whirl. Now I just need to find a good T-Mobile 3G connection because those are still difficult to find.

  • Mobile Live Streaming Video

    This is such a HOT topic right now! Everyone
    is talking about live streaming video, and
    mobile technology is allowing anyone to become
    a broadcaster overnight. I love what Qik's
    doing for live video. T-Mobile is the best
    cell phone provider in my opinion. They now
    have an unlimited internet plan with text
    messaging for 19.99/m!! = awesome. I actually
    just blogged about it at brentgrab.com and
    another good site for live streaming video but
    for Businesses to use it for their website
    video content is www.monetizemedia.com

    Actually, iPhone jailbreakers HAVE been Qik-ing for about a year now.... so i guess we can say "there's an app for that".....
