Justin.tv iPhone App Now Broadcasts Live Video Over 3G/WiFi

If you’re into the whole live-streaming thing, you’ll be happy to know that the Justin.tv iPhone app has been updated to allow for live video broadcasts over 3G/WiFi. When the NHL season resumes this Fall, Justin.tv is great for live “streams” of certain games. Just don’t let Gary Bettman know, or he might take away draft picks and fine you $3 million dollars…err…oh wait, that’s a different story.

Anyways, here’s the latest description of new features:

You can share your broadcast on Twitter and Facebook so friends and family can watch. And best of all, you can watch any live video from Justin.tv on the go with our fun, fast, and easy to use app!

This new update of Justin.tv works very well. I just did a quick test video, and you can select from Normal or High Quality video when you upload. HQ live recording is limited to WiFi, but if your iPhone is jailbroken My3G will create an easy workaround. There are also immediate options to share videos to Facebook and Twitter, plus you can also use the front facing camera on the iPhone 4.

Previously, I was in love with QIK for live streaming of events from my iPhone (and USTREAM as well). Justin.tv might take the cake as my new favourite video streaming app.

Are you a live video junkie? What app are you using?
