We’ve been writing regularly about livestreaming video apps, from Twitter’s Periscope and Facebook’s ‘Live’ feature to startups like YouNow, Live.me and Musical.ly’s Live.ly. Flits is  another one for the list, except it’s focused purely on music. It want artists and fans alike to stream video live “any time you are at a concert, happen to be passing by a killer busker, or rehearsing a new song in your bedroom”. Flits then aggregates all this footage and matches it to a database of venues, artists and events, while also promising to recommend future concerts worth attending. Unusually, Flits has launched with some licensing deals in place: with American PROs BMI, ASCAP and SESAC, with the promise of European agreements to come. “Let’s put it this way: If you livestream with Flits, the featured artist gets paid,” claims its website. For now, Flits is available globally as an iPhone app.
