NEW YORK (AP) -- It could be the next step for YouTube – moving from recorded video into live streaming.

YouTube is already the largest video platform on the Web. And it's expected to become a major force in the rapidly-growing live streaming video business -- a field in which some smaller companies have already established themselves.

An experimental trial for a live streaming platform begins today, with four new media partners.

For the last two years, YouTube has offered several events live, including a U2 concert and President Barack Obama's first State of the Union address. But for all of those events, YouTube relied on third-party technology.
