 Video sites that are full of user-generated content have made producers out of anyone with an internet connection -- but uploading a video of your dachshund barking the theme to Night Court is a far cry from broadcasting live. Up until very recently, live web video was more akin to a jittery slide show. Fortunately, the Advanced Products team at Yahoo! quietly launched Yahoo! Live, a free web app that allows you to use your Mac’s built in camera and microphone to broadcast your own live video and audio. Since its launch, Yahoo Live! has been streaming all sorts of content, from an Obama rally to a live episode of Diggnation (which proved to be a bit too popular, temporarily crashing the still-experimental service).
