The Raspberry Pi is ideal for monitoring, so local live streams can be set up (via Android, too). Also, a Raspberry Pi Youtube Live Streaming is possible, e.g., for somebody who wants to watch his plants grow or wants to share other projects live.
In addition, it is possible to make the stream publicly or privately accessible. With YouTube taking care of everything else, this tutorial is very easy to follow.
