Support for FME and updated browser based broadcaster

This morning we rolled out a couple of nice additions to the Bambuser toolbox that should come in handy next time you broadcast from your computer.

We now allow everyone to use the Windows XP / Vista based desktop application "Flash Media Live Encoder" from Adobe, a tool dedicated to high quality live streaming with H.264 and VP6 codecs. Hook up your webcam or DV camera and shine! See the guide for details on how to get started.

Also new is a vastly overhauled browser based broadcaster. Next time you do casual webcam broadcasting you will have a much more user friendly interface to guide you. Look for the "Go live with your cam" button in your dashboard as usual. Kudos to Jasper who pulled this one off!
