Ustream’s Live Mobilizer Gives Bands And Brands Live Streaming iPhone Apps

Popular live video platform Ustream is adding a new product to its repertoire today: an iPhone application platform called Ustream Live Mobilizer that offers brands, celebrities, and bands a customizable iPhone application that features Ustream’s live steaming capabilities. Each Mobilizer app is branded to the artist’s specifications (in other words, they don’t look like generic cookie cutter apps). The biggest feature here is support for watching an artist’s live video feed through Ustream, but the app also includes support for sharing to sites like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube. It also has Ustream’s ‘Social Stream’ feature, which lets you submit questions to the artist during a live stream and syndicate it out to other social networks.

YouTube Adds Video Editing in the Cloud

Up until now, if YouTube users wanted to combine multiple clips into a single video, they had to use offline editing tools. But YouTube today rolled out cloud-based video editing tools, giving users a whole new way to remix their existing video assets online. As detailed in the Google operating system blog, the new YouTube editor allows users to trim video, mix and match clips — even add music. And while the new offering won’t replace more robust video editing software — like Apple’s Final Cut Pro — it will enable users to combine their videos in new and interesting ways.

T-Mobile Rolls Out “4G Speed” Network In 15+ New Cities

4G is in the air! Or, at least for T-Mobile, 4G speeds are in the air. While T-Mobile isn’t technically allowed to pitch their HSPA+ network as 4G, its speeds can exceed that of the networks that some carriers (read: Sprint) have been toting as 4G for the last few months. This morning, T-Mobile is officially debuting their HSPA+ network in 15 new cities, from Los Angeles, CA to New Orleans, LA. While a handful of places — New York, Philadelphia, Vegas, and Memphis, to name a few — are already blanketed in T-Mobile’s latest radio juice, the new roster is pretty impressive. If you’re in Atlanta, Houston, Seattle, Tampa, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, New Orleans, or Charleston, fire up your device and give it a speed test — chances are, you’re surrounded in 4G(ish) radiowaves right this second.

Side-by-side: HTC EVO 4G vs. Flip SlideHD

One of the many neat features of the new HTC EVO 4G is its ability to record 720p HD video. Of course, the resolution alone doesn’t say much about how the videos look, which is why we decided to take the device for a spin and have it directly compete against a Flip SlideHD. I took both devices for a spin outside our office and recorded some additional footage in our hallway and elevator to challenge them on their ability to handle low light scenes. The results, in a nutshell: Flip maker Cisco can relax, at least for now. The EVO 4G doesn’t even come close to the crispness of the Flip, which also deals much better with challenging recording situations.

How Much Video Can You Watch With AT&T’s New Data Plans?

Critics were up in arms last week when AT&T revised its wireless data plans ahead of today’s WWDC keynote, in which Apple’s new iPhone HD is expected to be announced. The new plans, which essentially cap data usage on AT&T’s wireless network, take over for the company’s older unlimited data plan. While the new 2GB data plan, at $25 a month, is $5 cheaper than the old unlimited plan, it also limits the amount of content that can be viewed on Apple devices. AT&T claims that 98 percent of its subscribers use less than 2 GB per month, while another 65 percent use less than 200 MB a month. But the iPad and iPhone are built for content consumption, specifically web video consumption — so just how much web video can one watch under the new 2 GB data plan? To find out, video search startup Clicker tracked data usage of different video applications on the iPad and measured just how much video users can expect to view on each.

CBS Will Have Full Slate of Web Video on the iPad

CBS may have the most aggressive plans to enable viewers to watch web video on the iPad, but so far, that’s all they are — plans. The broadcaster has made only a limited number of promotional clips available for viewing on the tablet device, along with one full-length episode of Survivor. But Anthony Soohoo, senior VP and general manager of CBS Interactive, told us that by the start of the fall season it plans to have all the same video available on the Apple iPad that is available on
