Re: Which live streaming method is best?

Raul, yes there are, Ustream doesn't talk about it but the FME works with 
them also.

Maybe the Mac apps below would work with Ustream also, I don't know.

As far as justin.tv here is a bit on that for mac

It has info on the standalone broadcaster for mac among other thing.
