HOW TO: Use YTLive Web App To Watch YouTube Live Streams On iOS Devices

Watching YouTube on an iOS device can be a pleasant experience, unless you’re trying to view the service’s Live content. YouTube Live — its answer to Ustream, Livestream, and other streaming video services — was recently launched after months of limited trials. Wonderful news, of course, but there is just one catch: it uses Flash to provide the streaming instead of HTML5. At first, this meant iOS users were left uninvited to the party, but a savvy developer sensed the coming frustration and built YTLive, a web app enabling YouTube Live streams on Safari. Let’s see how to use it.

1. Go to http://youtube.com/live/

2. Enter the selected channel and copy the link on the Streaming Title (Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr9CHCH6dYE)

3. Go to http://l1-live.appspot.com/ and paste the copied streaming title into the appropriate box and tap on watch.

4. That’s it, enjoy.

NOTE: Only works in Safari, and iOS 3.3 and newer.
