HTC Re YouTube live streaming coming to Android, iOS
HTC’s next flagship, the rumoured Hima (aka the One M9) didn’t make an appearance at the ongoing CES 2015 (and we’re not at all surprised), but there were enough news from the Taiwanese company to get us excited: the Desire 320 (though not a CES device per se), the Under Armour partnership bit, as well as the Desire 826 announcement (and our hands-on).
While still in Vegas for CES 2015, HTC announces that the company’s Re camera will be able to live stream to YouTube, if that’s something you wanted to do, and couldn’t out of the box. The HTC Re YouTube live streaming capability will be available starting tomorrow (January 9), via an update, and will be as easy as connecting the Re camera to your YouTube channel “and sending a live broadcast link to viewers around the world”. Apple users will need to wait until later in Q1 of 2015 to be able to live stream to YouTube using the Re.
The methodology is explained by HTC in its official press release:
“With the Re app, sign in to your YouTube channel and activate live streaming. Once verified, broadcasting from your RE is a snap. Any live footage you wish to share is transmitted directly from RE to your smartphone, which then sends your broadcast to your YouTube channel.”
