Jess, thanks so much for doing these streams of the Hypergrid Safari adventures. Great job!

Umm Hamlet? Almost all streaming services have those features, including Twitch (back when they still allowed SL), Ustream and Hitbox. It's nothing specific to Youtube. The point you make in this post could be generalized to all streaming services.

... except YouTube has the largest user base by far of any of them, is integrated with Google and thus has better SEO for content by far, and like I said, YouTube's most-watched content by far is game footage.

Yes, youtube is big, but it isn't big for "streaming"...yet. Frankly the streams there seem to be rather laggy and not up to twitch/ustream quality, at least for the PC based streams. Are people trying to stream on dual-cores or something? And there's still a lot of inertia around the already existing twitch/hitbox/ustream communities. After all, just because Google had Google+, it didn't mean everyone and their dog jumped from Facebook now did it?


CronoCloud Creeggan.......Google will probably just buy twitch if they have any technology issues

Excuse me while I find some small change behind the sofa......
