Treyarch game design director elaborates on Black Ops 2 streaming

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 live streamers will need a YouTube channel with at least 10 viewers to stream the game, Treyarch design director David Vonderhaar said via Twitter.

Activision announced last week that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will enable players to stream live gameplay via Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. The service can be viewed over browsers, tablets or mobile devices and will allow users to stream multiplayer League Play games.

According to Vonderhaar, streamers will be able to provide commentary, as their voices will be included in the live stream. Additionally, Vonderhaar offered advice on usable cameras.

"If you are interested in live streaming those League Play games you will (optionally) want the right camera," Vonderhaar tweeted. "Currently supported cameras: 360: Vision. PS3: Eye. PC: Most USB Cameras."

"I know a lot of you probably have a Kinect, but it is still [being] evaluated as a video camera for the feature," he added.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 releases on Nov. 13 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. A Wii U release will follow on Nov. 18.
