Ad's are reducing business potential for Livestream
I'm not sure what's going on but recently the screen overlay ad's seem to be getting bigger and stay on longer. As others have reported the ad's are a major discredit to Livestream users and discourage increased use of the service. I can understand the full screen audio/video ad's when viewers first access a Livestream site, but the lower third overlays that block user generated overlays and ticker information is overkill.
I am currently researching, Ustrem, Justin and Livestream for my video channel. I really like the Livestream features but if the annoying ad's continue I will have to go with one of the Livestream competitors.
