Several years ago I found myself spent my time on various streaming services. I watched how people looked for its 5 minutes of fame. I saw how people founded each other for love, for friendship, for troll battles and etc. And I thought about one place for all of these streams. And one day I did it. It was LiveOMG.com. Now I almost forgot what it looks like an ordinary TV program, excluding sport.

On screenshot we see websites where people were diverted to from LiveOMG.com according well-known analytic site similarweb.com. Let`s step inside of these stats.
One of the new live streaming projects is Periscope. This is former startup and now it is part of Twitter. Launching in first half of 2015 Periscope mobile application became a huge star in the world of live streaming video.

Leading websites sending direct clicks to periscope.tv is onperiscope.com, eksisozluk.com, liveomg.com, twitch.tv, hootsuite.com.
Onperiscope.com is part of the periscope fan environment. Periscope doesn?t have directory of streams in web interface. The empty space should be filled. The unofficial web interface was build.
Eksisozluk.com is one of the biggest online communities in Turkey. So Twitter has its audience in Turkey and those loves to interaction. And it seems video interaction was liked.
LiveOMG.com is an aggregator of live stream video.
Twitch.tv is another well-known live streaming video platform which was sold to Amazon.com on valuation about US$970 million. Site focused on video gaming. Users broadcasted a playthrough of a video game.
Hootsuite.com is a tool for social media management. It is strange to see that kind of site in top list but there it is.
Another a live-streaming video website is Younow. Early adopters of live streaming know its like BlogTV.com. On March 2013, BlogTV was merged with the new live streaming company YouNow.

4hds.com is unofficial simple statistical system for online streams.
If you were Russian and wanted to have some video chat with somebody you knew of course Chatroulette. But you knew also other sites. One of them is Vichatter. It is Russian based video stream project. Vichatter has many web interfaces in simple web and social network (vk.com).
