YouTube will support live video before the end of this year, co-founder Steve Chen told Pop17 videoblogger Sarah Meyers. Check out the clip:

The background party music is thumping, so here’s a transcript:

Meyers: “When are you guys gonna do live video on YouTube?”

Chen: “2008. We’ll do it this year.

“Live video is just something that we’ve always wanted to do, we’ve never had the resources to do it correctly, but now with Google, we hope to actually do it this year.”
