This is not related to Japan, but I thought I'd share this service with you. A friend of mine ask me if it is possible to broadcast a live feed with a rally he will be participating. I don`t see why not, I told him. He also told me a person he knew was doing just that. She showed him a live video via the Internet where she can monitor her dog 24hrs a day via her computer. The service she used is call Ustream. I did a quick search and found out this service is pretty cool. Ustream allows you to broadcast your live feed using a webcam over the world wide Web. Anyone can tune in to your channel and watch you over the net, live! All you need is a webcam, computer, and Internet connection. The process is very simple; anyone can set it up in just 10 minutes.

The first thing you need to do is to sign up for a free account at After which, you create your own show name. The name you choose will be yours only. This will be the name you tell the world to watch you on. When you have created your name, click on Broadcast Now. That`s it.

Ustream offers hardcore users their application version call Ustream Producer and Ustream Producer Pro. This application allows you to stream video in high quality with some added feature that Ustream website doesn't offer . The Producer version is free to download and the Pro has a one-time fee of $199 price tag. You can see a side-by-side comparison chart what both applications have to offer. Both applications are supported for Mac and Windows OS.

As if this is not enough, Ustream also offer their mobile version applications of viewing and broadcasting from your mobile phone. If you have an iPhone, you can download their uStream viewer and broadcaster applications. One views selected iPhone broadcast feed and their other can broadcast from your iPhone. Other mobile phones are supported such as the Android and Nokia Phones. You can click here to find out the types of mobile phones Ustream supports. I mentioned early that only selected iPhone broadcast feeds are available, which I think is unusual. This means we are limited to watch feeds that are picked from the developer only. So your new feed will most likely not show up on the iPhone. Hopefully, future updates will allow all broadcast feeds available for search. The applications for mobile phones are free to download. I have setup my account and will be experimenting with it from time to time. Check back to see what you may find. Channel: FarFromHome-Live
