    Anyone use it? I tried it out with my Droid and a laptop in front of me, there was about a 10 second delay with the Droid connected to WiFi, but the quality was great.

    You can upload videos that you take with the Qik app, or stream live.... And you can set it up to post to Twitter, FB, and the usual. Pretty cool app IMO.

    I tested it yesterday over 3G and there's about a 5 second delay. This is an awesome app. Are there any others that do live video streaming?

    I can't get it to stream. I've tried about 10 times. It's either a black screen or a still shot. I waited for several minutes and it never played.

    i think it will only stream if you have a very good connection or are on wifi. i tried it with a 3g conn. and it didnt stream. but it did upload the video when i was finished to qik.com

    I have never had a problem streaming. You need to be at the main page though qik.com/userXXX it automatically pops up.

    Also, you probably have to be broadcasting as public. Check that setting as well.

    I use it every now and then, works well, good video quality plus sound. There is a delay of up to 10 seconds, works well over 3G. Check out the qik site, they have all kinds of videos to even Demi Moore posting. It's best used with a lot of light or outside.

    I like QIK, just played around with it but it is alot faster way to start shootig video then loading camera, and I kinda like the "Recorded on my Droid" label on the videos.. or similiar saying it says.. not to intrusive like the Ipod when people email you from it, you get like 3 lines of blank space then the "Sent from my Iphone"

    The sound on this is great. I wish there is an option to set a password to view the videos during streaming (not after it's done recording). Sure you can set it to private later but others are still able to see it.

    I agree. I was just doing a test run and looking around my living room, and complete strangers were posting comments. That's creepy!

    Hopefully they'll implement a password system so you can give it to friends and family along with the link.
