Joost is a great online library of streaming video featuring more than 46,000 items to view, including 1,200 movies, individual 400 TV series, and 18,000 music videos that you can access right from your computer. Perhaps even cooler, though, is that now you can get it on your iPhone, too. They recently released an app into the App Store that lets you view their otherwise flash-only online video on the iPhone.
A while back, Qik announced that they had begun private beta testing of their live streaming app for the iPhone. The app worked for the most part in its beta form, although it was only available to a select few (we had a chance to play with it). Thankfully, Qik has just announced that the application will be released to the public via Installer.app, with one fairly significant caveat. Although we'll be getting Installer for iPhone 2.0, the Qik app isn't ready for 2.0, which means it only works on phones loaded with 1.1.4.
Kevin Rose is back again, but this time it's not with a prediction or rumor. He recently sat down with the CEO of Qik, the popular service that lets you stream live video from your mobile phone to the internet, and it's official: Qik will be coming to the iPhone. A video demo of it running on the device has been created, which you can view after the break.
YouTube on the iPhone was a great idea, but how many times can you watch "OK Go, on Treadmills" or "Skateboarding Dog" before you're sick of it? Personally, I think Google Video is where it's at. It has a much better interface and it's a hotbed for documentaries. The only problem is that Google Video is based on Flash. Fortunately, there's a really easy work-around built right in to Google Video.
