YouTube began a limited two-day test of live streamed video on Monday, partially fulfilling years of rumors that the Google-owned service would go into the streaming market

YouTube has jumped on the live streaming bandwagon and is now offering a limited two-day test of live streamed video in hopes to compete with big name players such as Livestream, UStream and Justin.tv.

The test started Monday and has since got mixed reviews about the video being choppy and the long lag time. 

However Google forewarned everyone that the trial have its problems that need to be worked out but, I guess you can't please everyone.
