I have used it from the user end but not the provider end. There's a few out there like it.

ustream.tv works better then livestream.com. So far the best service out there I have had good luck with is justin.tv. I do some streaming when playing games on the Xbox 360 using flash media encoder and so far justin.tv has had the best video/audio quality with the fewest server errors.

We use ustream.tv at our radio station, Monster Radio AM 1150 WGGH. I don't think we've ever had a problem with it that wasn't caused by an internet/power outage or one of us at the studio.

You can "see" it in action by going to http://www.wggh.net and clicking Live Stream

I've watched some streams, most recently, the day that RB3 accidentally got shipped to people early... JTV was definately the *best* stream they had up. UStream is good, but their player seems to not like my computers.

I think Ustream is making great strides, but I hate that you have to pay $200 for something that maybe you could get for free from Adobe or something like that. I mean we started using it way way back when it was just coming out. We were one of the few to test out the Flash Media encoder on their stream. It did not work well with our cams. We are hoping to find a USB switcher for some USB cams but I keep telling the crew to go DV and firewire for clean clear picture.
