ustream-iconLive Video Streaming is a new phenomenon hitting the internet by whirlwind. However, watching these streams has been mostly limited to watching at the desktop. That all changes with the release of the new Ustream.TV viewing app.

There are two main functions of the Ustream viewing app – watching live streaming and chatting. Broadcasting Live from your iPhone is not available, yet. The video quality is decent, and connecting to a stream can actually go quite fast. The chatting function is decent, and can be viewed either at the bottom or to the left of the video stream, depending on which orientation you’ve set the iPhone at.

As well as the app works, you can only use it when connected to WiFi. Forget watching a live stream via 3G or EDGE. While this could be an annoying decision, network speeds are probably too slow to watch live video.

Upon original 1.0 release, Ustream did not include support for full screen viewing, but have since included that in a 1.1 release. Navigating and viewing profile pages is currently not supported, and navigating to find recorded videos can be a pain. I’ve experienced a few problems with crashing, but not an excessive amount.

Available in the app store, the Ustream app is Free and definitely worth a download.
