YouTube expands Live Streaming feature to more accounts

YouTube began experimenting with live streaming a few years ago, offering it to show a few big events as they happened. In 2010, the feature was expanded a tad to a few networks, with plans to expand it again in the future. It has been a slow process, but the offering is being expanded again, this time to a wider range of users who have "eligible accounts."

Red Bull Stratos supersonic skydive live: Felix is falling!

For those of you not already watching the live video feed of the Felix Baumgartner jump from space down to the planet in a Red Bull stunt for the record books, now's a good time to start - he's jumped!
