Spreecast takes on Google Hangouts with a YouTube- and Reddit-inspired redesign

Caitlin McGarry | April 22, 2014
If YouTube has taught us anything, it's that humans will watch just about any video you put in front of them. Cats playing keyboards? Why not? We can't get enough. Live-streaming service Spreecast is taking video to the next level with interactive features that turn the lens around, because as much as we love watching videos, we love starring in them even more.

Spreecast doesn't really know exactly how many people use the service. To watch a live-stream or search through the site's archives, you don't need to register for an account. To comment or participate, you do. That fuzzy active viewer count could make it tough for Spreecast to make money on ads, but founder and CEO Jeff Fluhr said Spreecast is doing just that.

"There's a hierarchy of video from an advertiser's perspective," said Fluhr, who also founded StubHub. "There are videos you might find on places like YouTube, but then there's live video. We believe that interactive live video is a notch above that."
