YouTube announced today that it would be testing a limited trial of a new live streaming platform with select partners: Howcast, Next New Networks, Rocketboom and Young Hollywood.
Howcast is a website that provides entertaining how-to videos to viewers. Combining different filmmaking techniques such as humor, claymation and animation, Howcast takes practical content to a new level of entertainment.
Just two days ago, Howcast added a video that shows viewers how to use Foursquare using a simple step-by-step process. Foursquare obviously got a kick out of it as the geo-location social network added the video to its website.
