Blog and stream live video direct from your mobile

www.qik.com

Ok this is cool. Especially if you have a phone with wifi built in (like the Nokia N95) so you don’t end up with a million dollar phone bill.

After you sign up Qik sends you a txt/sms with a link, you install an app and then you’re pretty much there. The app activates your built in cam (you can use the main camera or the one that you look into when on a video call. As soon as you click the ‘stream’ button you’re up and running.

The site is producing a lot of ‘testing videos’ – clearly people trying Qik out on their phones (as did I) so I guess we’ll have to wait to see if this new method of publishing produces any decent content. At the moment it’s like watching a collection of pointless mobile webcams.

Note: Qik only supports Nokia phones (mainly E and N series). Qik is owned by Visivo Communications (http://www.visivocommunications.com/)

Tomorrow we will create a video using Qik and post it here :)
