AOL is getting good at streaming video
AOL didn't even flinch when their streams of Live 8 concerts drew over 5 million unique viewers
last Saturday, setting a record for AOL. At peak viewing time, 175,000 people were streaming feeds at the same time. AOL didn't have anywhere near a hard time providing video for that many users, making it easier for people to enjoy Live 8 thru AOL versus watching it on tv.
