Have people used this to stream weddings?
this question +1
Ustream is a great way how to connect people around the world and so our users have definitively been using our services for events like weddings, graduations etc.
I cannot say when a commercial will be playing if your friend decides to use the free account but there are couple ways how to avoid the commercials:
1. The viewers can use our Premium Membership which allows viewers to watch broadcasts without ads. In this case, all the people who would want to watch the wedding without ads would have to sign up for Ustream account and get the Premium Membership themselves.
2. The broadcaster (your friend or whoever will be streaming the wedding) can use our Pro Broadcasting package which enables him to stream without ads. The viewers will be able to watch it without ads and did not have to sign up for Ustream at all. If your friend will have lots of people watching the wedding then Pro Broadcasting would be the easiest and most efficient solution I think.
There is no limit on how much video you can stream.
I hope this helps!
