As its name suggests, Ustream provides a way for you to record and broadcast your own video. All you need is a broadband internet connection, a microphone and a web cam or video camera to use this free service. Signup takes just seconds and within a couple of minutes more you can have your own show on-the-air. Typically, if you attach your camera to your computer, Ustream will automatically detect it.
At any time, there are hundreds of shows available for viewing, tagged and arranged into different categories and networks. There are also hundreds of thousands of previously recorded videos available for viewing. Ustream also has a social component similar to many other sites. By establishing your own profile, you can find friends, send and receive private messages, subscribe to video feeds, and join in with the community conversation on the Ustream forum.
