Watching YouTube on an iOS device can be a pleasant experience, unless you're trying to view the service's Live content. YouTube Live -- its answer to Ustream, Livestream, and other streaming video services -- was recently launched after months of limited trials. Wonderful news, of course, but there is just one catch: it uses Flash to provide the streaming instead of HTML5. At first, this meant iOS users were left uninvited to the party, but a savvy developer sensed the coming frustration and built YTLive, a web app enabling YouTube Live streams on Safari. Find and copy the link to the live stream you want, go to the app, and paste it in the box provided. Then, let your hearts be gladdened as you delightfully devour as much video as you can handle. Head to our source link below to find the app.
