Stream live footage from your Windows Phone with UTrailMe

UTRailMe

Instagram and other social networks enable consumers to share photos with friends and family. It's interesting to check exactly where someone has been and what activities they've been enjoying. But what if you could share live footage, instead of a still shot (or recorded video)? Cue UTrailMe for Windows Phone 8.

What the app can do is share live recordings with social networks. The Windows Phone owner can simply fire up UTrailMe, hit "Go Live" and a link will appear on supported networks. If you'd rather not share your video links for live streaming with everyone under the sun, this can be disabled and the video footage will be saved within the app and on the UTrailMe website (www.utrail.me).

So how can UTrailMe be used in the real world? It's a perfect solution for live music and concerts, or if you're currently experiencing the most incredible view on top of a country hill. Simply whip out the Windows Phone, snap some shots and launch UTrailMe to begin streaming what you see with everyone else. Before anyone freaks out about streaming video and data limits on contracts, there are some options to help out here (and you don't have to record for hours - just capture a few seconds if needs be).

UTrailMe

UTrailMe will upload the video at a later data should the current data connection not be stable enough for upload. The video quality can also be configured to save space and bandwidth. We strongly recommend checking exactly what your allowance is for each month before cracking on with such apps. This is the first release too, but DreamTeam (the developer behind the app) have some interesting features planned for UTrailMe:

  • 100% offline mode for recording (and upload when connection is available)
  • Sharing to groups
  • Location services support
  • Push notifications

An exciting possibility is the intgration with other Windows Phone apps. The developer has opened up UTrailMe so other developers can get cracking with connecting to the live streaming capabilities and offer their on consumers a unique experience. It's a concept worth checking out if you find yourself recording numerous videos, but would also like to dive into live streaming too.

You can download UTrailMe from the Windows Phone Store (available for Windows Phone 8 only).

This is quite cool...even this is not available yet (to my knowledge) on the much-vaunted Google Glass.

Murani Lewis says:

Quite cool. Yes some nitwit will stream things that shouldn't be viewed publicly but the concept is good.

Bkr11 says:

Correction Murani - many nitwits will likely do so - but I'm still stoked to see great apps coming to WP8!

SeanW20 says:

I try to just not make friends with nitwits... Though, some do slip through the cracks. :\

ruthietootie says:

Man thought this was a ustream 3rd party app. Interesting idea nonetheless

ZuNuKoo says:

I like this alot it's like YouTube live stream. But mobile. I'll be doing this. Should be fun.

sholokov says:

It's funny how you can't watch the videos you have just created on your WP8.

That might be because of bug we fixed in 1.2 version. Now 1.3 is live. 

Kenjoe says:

Very interesting app....this could be very useful

NightWatch71 says:

I needed an app like this a few days ago. I'm in Turkey and there are protests/riots going on for the last week. It would've been better to show it to people live. Especially the "actions" of the police. I tried looking for a Ustream app but couldn't find any. I'm going to get this app but i hope i won't have to use it.

tcman88 says:

This is awesome!

Shantek says:

Nice idea, downloading. Someone really needs to read over articles before they are published tho.. :P Lol

Osama204 says:

This app couldnt be more useless, after installation and setting up my facebook account, couple of tries  gave error messages when trying to view after the clip totally got uploaded, UNINSTALLED and removed app permission from facebook

Yeah same with twitter. I sent the link to my stream to a friend, he clicked it and it just gave an error message, stream couldnt be found.

Same for me.  I tested it out by tweeting the link, checked it out on my PC and the stream couldn't be found.  If this app would work, it would be cool because I like how you can directly post to Twitter/FB with it.

Hi! Sometimes server side is not responding, that might be due to WPCentral's effect :)
Please try again a bit later, and thank you for downloading the app!

eortizr says:

I just tried with FB, it posted the link automatically and it work as expected, about 20 sec delay...

4Tiles says:

Major Nelson is doing a meet up at the Microsoft Store in LA on Monday to show off the Xbox One.. Don't think they're going to live stream it so it would be cool if someone live streamed from a Lumia 920/928 or something.

Chris_Kez says:

The last paragraph of their Terms of Service recommends that you go and read their Privacy Policy, but there doesn't seem to be a link to it anywhere.

Isn't this like "hang with" on iPhone

iradeut says:

Is there a way to embed the live stream on a web page?

astrakh says:

You can have pages where all videos will be accumulated by given hashtag
e.g. http://www.utrail.me/galustyan/

webnoi says:

It's like Qik from Microsoft. BTW, why Microsoft don't have a Qik client for Windows Phone?

WiNGSPANTT says:

This is amazing, perfect for recording crimes, police brutality, disasters. Get it uploaded before you die!

nikoduque says:

This is nice but i would like to find a nice streaming live tv app that works where i live :\

Royalmage says:

Completly broken for Lumia 521 (possibly cus there is no flash or something that is trying to be accessed)... If a dev wants any help testing this please let me know, as I am a dev as well and would love to help out. This has many applications and I would love to start using the app.

astrakh says:

Hi, thank you for your help!
Could you please submit crash details steps to reproduce to dreamteam.feedback (at) gmail.com
Was you prompted by the app to send email with crash details?
Thanks!

eortizr says:

now this is a first... good job

Wyn6 says:

Yes. If all winds up well and after some spit and polish, this could certainly be the next "must-have" app for the world.

AjL45 says:

This app would be amazing if it worked.  I have tried 3 times today to get the stream to work.  It posts the link to my twitter when I start broadcasting, but when I try to get the feed to play on my PC, it gives me an error of "200, Stream not found, NetStream.Play.StreamNotFound, clip:".  Oh well, I guess i'll uninstall for now.

This might be related to the phone model or server issues. Can you send your phone model to dreamteam.feedback (at) gmail.com so we can assist you?
Thank you!

Please help me, I just can't make this app work, I log on to face and twitter, and hit the button "go live" but the link doesn't appear on my facebook or twitter... Why is this happening?
