StubHub Founder Launches “Spreecast,” A Social Video Broadcasting Platform. Wait, could this be the future of classrooms?

Fluhr tells me that he saw a gap in providing a video communications platform that is inherently social and allows multiple people to broadcast their conversations live. While broadcasting startups like Justin.TV and Ustream allow for live broadcasting, the social element of conversation is missing.

Thus, the idea for Spreecast was born. In a Spreecast social video stream, up to 4 people at a time can be face-to-face, streaming their conversation live while hundreds of others can watch, chat, and participate by submitting comments and questions to those on screen.

The producer controls allow the creator (and other co-producers designated by the creator) to control who gets on camera and when. And people can come on and off camera allowing for more than four people during the course of the Spreecast. When a viewer requests to join on camera, the creator can screen them by previewing their video and text chatting with them privately before deciding whether to allow them to go on camera.

You can email guests by entering email addresses or importing your gmail contacts. You’ll also be able to Tweet, Google+ or post to your Facebook feed so that your followers and/or friends will be notified about your Spreecast. You can also invite viewers at any time from the Spreecast page – before, during or after a Spreecast (to view the archive). Spreecast is also integrated with Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ so that producers and creators can broadcast their conversations to their friends, followers, circles, contacts and connections.

Can I Stream It? :.

Let’s say you are a regular techie with a Netflix account, a Hulu account, and since you only shop online, you also have an Amazon Prime account. Now let’s say you want to know if a movie you’re dying to watch is available to be streamed instantly, using any of these accounts.

With CanIStream.It, you can search across all of these services and pick the one you want to use. And if the movie you’re looking for is not available, just sign-up, set a reminder and viola we will shoot you an email when your chosen service makes the movie available. It’s simple and fast.

CanIStream.it also searches iTunes and Amazon OnDemand stores; so if a movie isn’t available you might still be able to digitally rent or purchase it.

Just type in the movie title you want to search for and then select “Streaming“, “Rental”, “Purchase”, or “DVD/Blu-ray” from the menu to check for availability. If the movie is available, simply click on the icon and it will take you to the movie page, for the service you selected. If not, then sign-in and set a reminder and we’ll let you know when it becomes available.
