Live video-streaming from YouTube
You should be prepared to start receiving live Video streaming from YouTube in the not too distant future.
Over two days the site is planning a trial in which four partners will get the chance to air live programmes.
YouTube has done one-off live events in the past, but the trial marks a test of underlying technology that will be used when the service is launched.
The live programming system is likely to be only open to media partners rather than individual web users.
YouTube partners Howcast, Rocketboom, Next New Networks, and Young Hollywood will take part in the test that runs from 13-14 September.
Rocketboom said it would be showing an hour-long variety show that resembles the programmes seen on TV.
