Spreecast, social video platform that Politico and others are using
Based in San Francisco,
"We're all about face to face conversations over the internet. Over the last ten years there has been a huge explosion of the number of conversations that people are having on Twitter, Facebook or blog posts. What we're doing at Spreecast is, here is another format to have face to face conversations using web cam, using your computer and talking to people, in a real time, synchronize way as opposed to text based asynchronies," explains Jeff Fluhr, CEO & co-founder of Spreecast.
With Spreecast, up to 4 people at a time can be face-to-face, streaming their conversation live while others can watch, chat, and participate by submitting comments and questions. Spreecast can integrate with Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ so that producers and creators can broadcast their conversations to their friends and followers.

Nice video Robert. Lutecast (www.lutecast.com) takes a more personal, non-broadcast approach for their proprietary tech, enabling up to six family members or friends to experience photos or video in real-time. Sending upcoming announcement to your email...

Social Chats Spreecast is held on Fridays at 10am pacific time. and I usually chat about trends and topics of the week related to Social Media. Want to join 4 Social Media chicks kick off Cinco de Mayo weekend?
Would you be open to being a guest on our SocialChats Spreecast next Friday?
The best part about Spreecast is that you can pre-promote and Promote Live the show using Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and G+. The interface with the other social media channels is what sets it apart from G+ Hangouts. Then you can embed the archived conversation into your blog.
My pleasureI think you'll like a lot. It's amazingly easy to use!!
Thanks for the recommendation! I am constructing a video dialogue platform in San Antonio and looks like an amazing tool. Great to hear from a video podcaster who is utilizing it. I will check out your shows.
I've heard about this earlier in this year from Gary Vaynerchuk. Looks like a new to have web talk shows.
Interactive dialogues. The next wave online.
Thanks for posting this Robert. Call me crazy but I've glazed right over Spreecast because my brain immediately associated it with Spree Commerce, not the same thing obviously.
Is there any way you can help connect me to Jeff? I'd love to have him on (http://5by5.tv/founderstalk) - the invitation is open to you as well.
good and intresting
So, the secret sauce as pertains to increased engagement is, enable limited insta-hangouts anywhere on embedded videos? Sounds interesting, but I question the durability of the business model.
