Most Meerkat users are aware that the app offers an option to save their video streams on their mobile devices but does not save to YouTube for you.
There is an App available” Katch” that allows you to simplify the process of preserving your memories while passing off the storage and distribution concerns to YouTube’s servers.
By adding “#Katch” to your Meerkat video stream description, you’ll immediately alert Katch, which will then save your video, upload it to YouTube and then send you the link via your Meerkat comments. read more here
We add #Katch to our Meerkat Video Titles most of the time to capture our video for posterity.
