Live game playthrough

I started to watch "Video Game Awesome" recently and enjoyed watching their live(well, not live for me) video of them playing through a game.
They do a lot of video walkthroughs. For some games they split it up between different team members like "Super Mario RPG"
http://www.blisteredthumbs.net/2011/06/super-mario-rpg-is-awesome/

So maybe GU could do some kind of live walkthrough.
It could be done with an average gamer, skilled, speedrunner(looking at Zeo and Nightmare),etc.
All you need are some webcam(s) and a chatroom.

How hard would it be to do after all if you kept it simple.

I like the idea. We could host the videos on an official Youtube channel, if we can get people interested in doing it.
Never say never or always. In most cases, there is an exception to anything you can think of that you might use either word in. "Most likely" and "highly improbable" in a lot of those cases would ring true, but not never/always.

I Beleive I  mentioned something like this this earlier.

we could set up this for GU: http://www.w00ty.com/sda/stream/

The source code for this available from SDA.  I'd even be able to host it, as is it uses almost almost 0 bandwidth and very little storage.

As for getting it on the youtube channel I believe that's as easy as using youtube connect, and then you would need some one to verify the link ups.

If the people playing the game are interesting, then chances are it will attract some people.

By youtube you mean, someone will record the live stream and upload it to youtube, right?

Well, I DO have a youtube account set up for the site.
