When it comes to web broadcasting services, one of the most used that I’ve seen so far is Justiv.tv. Unfortunately, while I’ve found it a very good web app, I also find it rather complicated to use and set up. Until now, as Justin.tv just made its process of web broadcasting easier and faster.
According to the Justin.tv blog, they have overhauled the web broadcasting experience to make it easier to go live on Justin.tv. Â The new process eliminates all the required configurations and setup such as resubmitting forms, fiddling with Captchas, selecting categories, uploading images, selecting cameras, adjusting bitrate and other tasks. So with the new interface, you will now be spending more time creating live video rather than doing many chores to prepare creating video.
Initial assessment of the beta tests conducted on new users to Justin.tv revealed that 10% of them made it to the last step of creating web broadcasts, signifying a 700% increase from the old version prior to the launch of the new interface and simple process.Â Justin.tv now requires fewer settings which can even be skipped. And Justin.tv hopes that this could turn first-time users to become frequent live streamers.
Let’s see whether this simpler process of creating a live web broadcast would actually encourage new users as well as retain old ones.
If you’re in need of a tool to broadcast yourself or your friends online, you might want to check out Justin.tv again. Right now, CNET observed that the site is frequently being used by gamers. Something which keeps Justin.tv from going.
