@lavrusik do you think that users will prefer Webcam over a dslr setup, or was this product designed for on the go type of livestreams (hotel rooms, etc). The YouTube esthetic is to film with a dslr as much as possible. I'm not a creator on YouTube myself, but it's there a way to him up a dslr and do a live video?

Interesting - looking forward to seeing how "open" this platform will grow to be in terms of devices/platforms/and especially developer tools/APIs! 2 concerns that I'm sure someone already thought of: 1) I fully expect to see this become Youtube's version of AMAs - probably sans "reddiquette" enforcement 🤔 2) What's the plan to avoid the FB Live launch story (streams of suicides/etc.?)
