Ustream Broadcasts Interactive Video On Android

Android: Ustream brings its streaming video service to the Android platform with a new app, allowing shooters to stream feeds instantly over 3G or Wi-Fi, save them for later web sharing, and even chat with video watchers in real time.

Ustream isn't the first live video streaming app for Android sets, as the previously mentioned Qik app hit the Android market a few months back. What Ustream claims to have over its competition is a system that limits lag and doesn't let it "build up" over the course of a mobile broadcast. Streamers can also ask questions and post comments to their viewers via Ustream chat or Twitter. Ustream has a similar, but Wi-Fi-restricted, non-streaming iPhone app.

Ustream is a free download, available in the Android market. My G1 force-closed when trying to open the app, and Download Squad experienced similar problems, so if your own phone fails to launch Ustream, assume there's a fixed version coming down the line.
