Introducing the New Ustream Facebook Application

Update: Please note that the New Ustream Facebook Application feature described in this article has since been depreciated. It is no longer supported. It has been replaced by Inline Video Playback for Facebook and Twitter. The Inline Playback feature works over both social networks, and is as easy as posting the channel URL to a Facebook wall post or Tweet to implement. There is no application to install or other steps involved. It just requires a channel page that does not have advanced security features on it, like support for Single Sign-On. Read the Inline Video Playback article for more details.

 

When you broadcast live on Ustream we make sure that your event is viewable everywhere – on your Ustream channel page, on our mobile applications, and on embeds in blogs and websites throughout the internet.

Today we are excited to announce that you can showcase your Ustream events on your Facebook Page – giving you yet another place for your fans to view your content. It is viral, it is customizable, and it is absolutely free for everyone through the new Ustream Facebook Application.
