    I could be wrong but I think currently new livestream is the best deal as they are offering a free producer account with no ads to get the thing going.

      I could be wrong but I think currently "new livestream" is the best
      deal as they are offering a free 'producer' account with no ads to get
      the thing going.

      What's different about the new version is that it is totally event
      based so that you get, along with the stream, a kind of instant blog
      page for just that event. Downside - no embedding and changed url for
      every new event.

      I am seeing, especially in Europe, a lot of people using
      http://bambuser.com/ - works well with phones..

      Google hangout on-air can work well for certain things like online
      interviews, with great screensharing and lower third functionality.
      YouTube live is probably not quite ready for primetime (unless you are
      a partner) but interestingly has licensed a free version of the
      wirecast multicam switcher. http://www.youtube.com/wc4ytlive
