Qik allows your mobile phone to broadcast videos on live by streaming on the internet.
At the beginning of the year, this application was published but in a restricted way, only available for pre-registered or invited users. Now it has been published in a beta version and it is available for anyone who signs up in the website, even if you doesn’t want to stream videos but see and comment other people videos.
If you sign up you will be able to stream videos on a website directly from your mobile phone using your data plan to connect to the internet. In this new version you will have the chance of creating areas for your videos, grouping and making them public or private.
This new public version includes support for new phones such as Motorola Q or Nokia N96, and in following versions it will include support for iPhone 3G and several devices from HTC as HTC Touch Diamond.
One more feature of Qik is that the latency from the start of the recording to the beginning of the broadcasting on the internet is just between a half-second and 3 seconds. Half a second is extremely fast! This makes Qik the fastest and most live system of the online video streaming sites.
I’m sure that live video streaming from mobile phones is becoming something important in our lifes, better than just sending multimedia messages so that with Qik we can share on live our streams with whoever we want.
