I have a proposition! I would like to integrate live streaming in to my final year project and have found YouTube Live is a good option. It's free (with one catch) and provides all the encoding etc.
The one catch is that I need 1000 subscribers before I can use the service! Its a long shot but I would really appreciate if everyone that reads this subscribes to my channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/EMWBlog). It would mean the world to me!
Also, if you have any ideas to help me reach 1k subscribers by September then I am all ears. Please share and subscribe! In return I will subscribe to your page twice (if you have one) in return!!! Better than any kickstarter campaign I'm sure you'd agree.
