Streaming video website Justin.tv has released a new version of its iPhone app that allows users to broadcast live video directly from the app over 3G and WiFi. This means that Justin.tv users, wherever they are, can share what’s going on around them with the rest of the Internet, in real-time.
The iPhone app will offer live broadcasting to iPhone 4 and 3GS users along with a smattering of other features:
Simple, one-click broadcasting interface. Just click the big red button
Broadcast and share instantly on Facebook and Twitter.
Chat with friends in real-time within the application, while broadcasting
Support for iPhone 4 front-facing camera and flash
Broadcast on 3G or WiFi with smooth video and clear audio
Broadcasts saved to watch later automatically
Watch any stream live on 3G or WiFi
Push notifications when someone you follow goes live
Browse live video with categories and filters
With Justin.tv already saying that it “continues to grow with an average of 32 hours of live video streamed and ingested into the system every minute,” we can only speculate on what the addition of live-broadcasting for the iPhone could mean.
