YouTube Building API for Video Game Livestreaming

Interesting story from Engadget about YouTube creating an API designed to allow developers to build in livestreaming from XBOX, PS3 and PC games directly to YouTube.

As Engadget notes, a feature to livestream directly to YouTube was built in to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but it had some major limitations (aside from being a COD game, that is).

Even a feature that would capture and upload a gameplay session automatically but not necessarily livestream would be a huge step forward.
