Where is the Catholic Presence on ustream.TV?

I recently ran across ustream.TV… the new, free streaming video site. With Ustream.tv – all you need is a webcam and an internet connection to stream your video live, for free online!  It seems that not too long ago this kind of live streaming video was a very costly proposition. 

I was surprised to not find very much Catholic content at Ustream yet.  It seems like a perfect tool for the New Evangelization?  Some parishes have put up their own streaming video links to their Sanctuary or Adoration chapels… It would be great to have a whole array of streaming Catholic content at Ustream… all the SQPN.com videos, the EWTN-TV feed, webcams from the Catholic Radio Stations, from the Relevant Radio studios, webcams of the Vatican, live streaming from a whole array of Catholic parishes around the world… Wouldn’t it be great to tune into a Catholic Mass from Asia, Africa… Why not do a live stream from an event at your own Parish?

We will start building a list of links to Catholic streaming video on the CatholicWIFIRadio.com site – if you have any suggestions or some favorites – be sure to let us know!

    Actually, being Catholic myself, I was surprised to find that the catholic community used it as quickly as it has, we have had priests, monks, and numerous other streamers. SQPN has been streaming for quite a while,,At any rate we welcome more converts to the Ustream community so for those that might need help getting started I will post the following that I typically post to educators websites..

    We here at Ustream are thrilled with the way the educational community has accepted our premier Live Video service, in my humble opinion, we always strive to make the user experience as clean and safe as possible.
    In that vein the tricks, tips and techniques available in using Ustream can solve most every problem a teacher is likely to run into so feel free to contact us in the manner that best suits you or your veiwers. Beside email you may also post in the forums or stop in with one of our live community channels

    Actually, we at SQPN.com have been using uStream for over a year now. We’ve done live streaming praying of the Rosary with people from all over the world, regularly record live versions of our podcasts, and on New Year’s Eve we did a live 19-hour podcasting marathon on uStream, which included a live Mass celebrated by Fr. Roderick in the Netherlands.

    While we record a lot of our live streams, the difficulty is that it is hard to schedule streams in advance enough to let people know we’ll be doing it.

    You can search for individual shows (such as Rosary Army) at uStream, or just do a search for SQPN.
