Yahoo! Live and It's API

Tagged:  

Amidst all the news swirling around about a hostile Yahoo! takeover, and the battle of the titans (Microsoft & Google), Yahoo! has released a new service - Yahoo! Live - a personal live streaming video service. [read more about Yahoo! Live at their blog]

Yahoo released an API [a set of Web Services and a couple of embeddable Flash objects] along with this new service. With this API, you can:

  • Find out who's broadcasting right now
  • Get data about past broadcasts
  • See snapshots of past broadcasts
  • Embed live video in your blog or web page

Do keep in mind that the service is currently in limited beta and is not always available.
You may get a message stating "Whoa! Yahoo! Live is an experimental release - we can tell you like the experiment! We're tuning now. Refresh, wait a few seconds, or click here to try again."
