    Hey guys, heres a link to the videos i shot with my bro's 2.1 evo and my 2.2 evo. I don't know how to put the two videos together so i just uploaded it both to youtube. You can open up 2 browsers and view it at the same time. blah i know it aint that great but i guess it's better than something for now. Both phones was placed on a book and was pushed against it so it won't move.

    I have to do more testing when I get to a better reception place (desk at work sucks). But I was watching some SCII video on justin.tv
    So appears justin.tv works, haven't tried ustream.tv yet

    Just checked.
    Justin.tv and Ustream.tv work fine.
