Ustream is reportedly going up against Qik, Kyte and Flixwagon with the creation of a mobile vid-casting application, writes Mobile Crunch. We contacted Ustream for confirmation but only got back an email saying, “We don’t have a comment on mobile at this time.”

The big differentiator for the Ustream service will supposedly be drastically shorter lag times between recording and posting video. The video embedded above demonstrates the difference in lag between Ustream and Qik (though we don’t know how that video was created). Mobile Crunch also reports that the Ustream app will have mobile chat and if your handset has dual cameras, you’ll be able to switch between the two.

Though Ustream is being tight-lipped right now about the products (bastards!), we’ll keep pestering them to get more info. Recently mobile vid-caster Kyte started de-emphasizing its consumer service to focus on publishers.

  1. This biggest advantage I think Ustream will have is their size. They do alot of traffic now and have build a large community.

    Qik and the others really don’t have any.

  2. Looking forward to this. Can’t wait!

  3. A funny thing; at the end of the video, the broadcaster puts down the phones – but nothing really happen on the screen, must be at least 8-9 sec´s delay by that time… not very fast….
