The Game Guy
YouTube made some key improvements to their live streaming platform last week. It’s now possible to stream footage at 60 frames per second and for it to be viewable in HTML5. The update makes YouTube a viable competitor for Twitch as the two sites vie for the top name in game streaming.
It’s safe to say that most live game streaming happens on Twitch. The site has all but perfected the business of live game streaming, and has one of the biggest followings on the web. But I wanted to see how YouTube’s streaming experience differed for Twitch’s from a broadcaster’s perspective. The result was a mix of positives and negatives.
