Hey everyone! Anyone else here rely on google hangouts’ live streaming features? They recently announced Hangouts On Air is shutting down on august 1st.
They haven’t explained why, but this is a huge bummer because it has been enormously helpful for my podcasts. It’s been built into YouTube for the past couple years. We use it to VOIP, stream our show live as we are recording, and to host monthly on camera hangouts with our Patrons.
Is anyone figuring out how to deal with this upcoming shutdown? I’m surprised there hasn’t been more talk about it. Since my co hosts and I all live in various parts of the world, a simple live stream using one web cam wont work. Looking for other solutions that are similar. I’d go with crowdcast, but unfortunately it’s limited to 4 people simultaneously.
