YouTube co-founder Steve Chen says that live streaming video is something that YouTube has always wanted to do, and that this year, with the resources of Google, it is finally going to happen.

Take a look at this clip (above, at the last tag) with video blogger Sarah Meyer, which was featured in Meyer’s new online tech TV show, Pop 17.

NewTeeVee points to the clip, and thinks this spells trouble for live-streaming online video startups. The other question is: How will YouTube or anyone else make money from live streaming video?

Note: Meyer has a rather intense way of confronting people on camera (as I learned last year). An aggressive style can lead to scoops — I’m looking forward to more from Pop 17.
