Screencasting Live On YouTube:
How To Broadcast A Screen Presentation
To YouTube LIVE
Deep integration between Google, Google+, Hangouts, and YouTube make some wildly fun things possible!
Paul Colligan demonstrates how you can screencast LIVE on YouTube using Google Plus and the screen sharing feature in the Google Hangouts On Air Feature. Use it to broadcast a screen presentation – be it a PowerPoint Presentation, Keynote Slide Deck, or even a Presentation From Google Docs.
While Paul makes it sound like you can only share presentation apps, you can actually share any window open on your computer including silly stuff like the calculator. You can not share the whole desktop at once but since you can share the full browser window this is not a problem at all usually.
The University of Sheffield has shared a nice list of the pros and cons of this technology for both businesses and education alike (particularly copyright concerns).
Valerie Lynn has a great training session available to help businesses understand the best use cases for Google+ Hangouts in their business and marketing approach.
You can easily download a copy of your recording from YouTube once you are done.

Simple Tech Tips For Marketing
PS: Want to keep others out of your hangout while you film? Create a circle with only yourself in it… then only give that circle access to the hangout. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for comments on YouTube however!
