Live! From your Java ME cell phone: video streaming!

YouTube is catching a whiff that live streaming video from your cell phone would be a cool thing to have. Uh... duh! All those lolcats fans could have told you that! Imagine using your cell phone to catch your cat trying to flush your pet goldfish down the loo instead of having to dig for that camcorder from the back of your closet. Well, YouTube better hurry (and use Java ME technology for widest reach), because FlixWagon is already doing it with a Java ME cell phone app.

See:

Using Java ME to stream video from a cell phone

Here's a quote:

 The mobile client application, which 
 users must download, is... 218Kb for 
 J2ME phones...

 The mobile app is designed simply but 
 effectively in order to provide users 
 the shortest path to broadcast...
 users can edit video properties from 
 their phone, such as title, tags, 
 category, and access rights (public or 
 private).  The mobile app also 
 provides live feedback from viewers
Cool stuff! The name of the start-up, FlixWagon, is not so hot though. Sounds like a cross between a porno video store and those roach-coach lunch vans that stop in company parking lots, doesn't it? ;-)

Comments:

Why everybody gives us such a hard time about the name...? LOL ;)
