Recently alot more people have been streaming their work, and it's fantastic. being able to see others as they work is always a great learning experience. I thought we might do with a centralised thread for streaming discussion and to share channels. I figure also if people post in the same thread when they start streaming, it stops small 'I'm streaming!' threads from being missed.

Everyone I've seen stream on polycount so far has been using Livestream, which upon closer inspection, I have decided kinda sucks. As far as I know, there is no way to follow a channel, or get an alert when they start streaming. There doesn't seem to be any way to broadcast in HD without paying out the ass, and the transition to the 'new' livestream seems aimed at large scale productions, not bedroom broadcasting.

I've been looking around at alternatives and Justin.tv or twitch.tv seem to be good sites. They're very community orientated and feature HD support. Twitch.tv is solely a game streaming community, but have said they allow streaming of game development. It would be easy to stream under the game title 'polycount' for easy organization.
edit: Just noticed another bonus from Justin.tv - It's forum embeddable! But that's getting ahead a bit :P

So basically my biggest issue with Livestream for me is the quality, you can't see the settings someone uses, or fine details, and considering we are all artists, these things matter alot. I'm messing about with justin.tv settings now to see if I can get a HD stream, I'll post the results in a bit.

Post your streams here and I'll put a list in the OP!
