Using Thunderbolt to Capture from HDMI

I need to direct upload to youtube using an external camera that has an HDMI output. Before I buy a Blackmagic Intensity unit I wanted to know if anyone is using the input capabilities of the thunderbolt port on new macs to send HDMI straight into the computer, and from there directly up to youtube in realtime as a webcam upload.

I have a new macbook pro and the accompanying literature suggests that the thunderbolt port functions as an input with HDMI and embedded audio as well as an output but that compatibility with various programs ranges. Does anyone know if youtube is thunderbolt compatible for direct upload?
