I have just been watching a live stream on Ustream and wonder how it works. Do you pay to stream on it?

Just considering next year for a skating event that we may have here.

bump (I don't have an answer but am curious about Ustream.)

I don't think you have to pay - you just download the app on your phone, set up a free account with Ustream, and turn your phone on during the show/competition.

The hardest thing is avoiding the venue staff who may or may not tell you to stop filming. And since many shows (concerts, etc) are potentially filled with copywritten material, I've seen streams shut down by Ustream when the right people complained (i.e., contacts of the artists).

Actually we are looking at for running an official live streaming of an event. So it will be properly filmed.
