YouTube planning a live streaming push? In a recent interview with YouTube's Hunter Walk, he confidently hinted that "There is really no particular technology challenge to us delivering any type of video.” Speculation is still abound as to whether they'll tee off against (or just buy one of) the upstart live portals like UStream, Justin.tv, Livestream or Stickam.
