No, the display port on your macbook pro is output only. You may be able to use your camcorder as a webcam if it is capable of streaming video over USB or Firewire, though.

Apple's Final Cut Pro X includes a variety of auto-analysis and auto-correction features — stabilization, compensation for rolling shutter, color balance, et c. It can also attempt to automatically time-sync multiple clips, which I've found does a pretty decent job at roughing out the timeline. While I normally would feel uncomfortable relying on automated ...

That or the UpDownCross converter should meet your needs as long as the frame rates are the same. I'd personally stick with BlackMagic's hardware as you already have their ATEM and they make some of the most cost-effective hardware around. They aren't the top quality brand for sure, but you won't beat the value for the price pretty much anywhere else. If ...

Can't help with freeware, but i can shed some light on the professional side of things. At urgent.fm we use Zenon because most commercial stations in Belgium use it, and our station is one of the starting places for people interested into getting into radio work professionally in our region. That way someone who was trained at our station feels right at ...

Not sure about Windows, but for Ubuntu, you could always check out Rivendell. http://www.rivendellaudio.org/

if you just want a plain rtmp-stream you might look at nginx-rtmp module which looks quite easier to setup than crtmpserver. just a general suggestion: h.264 compression is a bit cpu-intensive, so if your server is more powerful than your notebook and the server to notebook-connection is good, it might be an idea to stream just "plain frames" with nearly no ...

https://net7mma.codeplex.com has a server and client implementation which is compatible with VLC and was created for exactly the scenario you cite. From the website: This project's goal is to allow developers to deliver media to clients freely in less then 10 lines of code utilizing standards complaint protocol implementations. It also aims to provide a ...

For amateur events, SDI may be overkill compared to using simple Component. The key for long runs is to separate the various components so that they don't degrade. There is a similar question here about long distance runs. As for HDMI to SDI, there should be no quality loss compared to HDMI as both are digital formats supporting full uncompressed HD ...

When I first started doing this, I always thought it was better to give them "clean" audio as well. I've since figured out that they want to hear themselves. Also they want to hear each other, so really you do not want a separate feed for them. Depending on what you are broadcasting, you may not even need the sound from the event. The only issue you're ...

You may want to look into Camtwiststudio for the mac. I work with Desert Bus for Hope doing a weeklong stream as well and we use it for just the sort of thing you're talking about. Camtwist has built-in plugins for both Twitter and RSS, and can leverage quartz composer to make more complicated overlays. It outputs a video feed for other Mac OS X ...

You need your own stream server. The problem with services like YouTube and Twitch.TV is that your stream has to go through a lot of processing and content distribution on their end before it goes out to viewers. That processing takes time and results in lag. You can send the exact same stream to your own stream server and have it directly related with ...

The more I thought about my requirements the more I was convinced that I needed a wifi enabled "security" camera setup than an action cam setup. I'm giving dropcam a try. It seems to satisfy all my requirements. Broadcast without any additional equipment Schedule recording times remotely from anywhere Broadcast is automatically recorded in the cloud for 7 ...

It depends on the level of protection you want, but no, there isn't really a good way to do it with Wordpress. You can paywall a portion of your Wordpress site, but a live stream isn't going to go over HTTP, it is going to run over an RTMP stream or something similar. Paywalling your Wordpress site will make people pay to find out the name of the RTMP ...

You should check your recorded video with MediaInfo. Regarding your problem, it shows, if the durations of the video and the audio is the same or not, if the interleave of the audio (the starting offset) is set correctly in which sampling rate your audio was recorded. Then, I would import your video file into Audacity (which imports only the audio, of ...

It looks like it isn't particularly trivial, however crtmpserver have a tutorial on their wiki here. It looks like you have to configure a lua file and then doing a new cmake of the server. (So very much non-trivial.) As an alternative, there are other servers that may do this for you more easily such as Red5 and also Adobe has a free offering mentioned ...

There are two options, neither of which is particular expensive. You can either use a component cable with a distribution amplifier or if you prefer a digital signal, there are wireless HDMI transmitters that will also work well. A distribution amplifier and a repeater are essentially the same thing, just slightly different purposes. A distribution ...

The only thing I can find about it is to set the Output OnScreen Displays to Off in the settings. If that isn't doing it, then I'm not sure that it is possible.

That appears to be analog signal degradation resulting in a loss of frame syncronization. You may need to add a video amplifier on the end near the camera to boost the signal enough to get it to your computer or possibly use a device that can convert it to digital and stream it over a network connection directly.

What you are referring to is called hot linking, and while it may or may not technically be a violation of their copyright or terms of use (check their website for details) it is still generally considered a poor practice since you are effectively utilizing their bandwidth without mentioning that it is their bandwidth. Your best bet is to contact the ...

A Raspberry Pi might be what you are looking for. It is a credit card sized Arm based computer running Raspbian (a Debian variant), and at $25 it may even be cheaper than buying several adapters. You could simply attach a web cam to the Pi and attach the monitor or TV via HDMI or Component out. To get to VGA you will need a converter which you can get for ...

That's something thats going to differ a fair bit based on picture complexity, implementation quality, profile used, etc. But going to low shouldn't cause the picture to stop, just fill with compression artifacts. Often, video completely stopping means you've had transfer issues. If you remove the satellite link, does the video freeze still occur? Cheap ...

Besides Max/MSP or Pure Data, which have already been mentioned, you can look into software like Processing, which can also be used to generate visuals, I believe. Pure Data supports OSC and MIDI I believe, which makes it easy to hook up the software to input devices which you can use in your DJ sets. So you can potentially control the visuals at the same ...

The Max/MSP modular environment has a package called Jitter which is used for modifying videos in realtime. I've not had the chance to play with it myself, but I've seen it used in video art installations. Max supports several kinds of control such as MIDI and OSC, so I imagine all of these could be used to control video. You'll have to make your own ...

This question doesn't really make sense as it is now--the quality of your YouTube videos should have nothing to do with livestreaming. If your camera takes good video to begin with and the videos look fine on YouTube, then the problem with livestreaming is going to be the upload bandwidth of your internet connection. If you don't have the bandwidth, the ...

What you are asking is extremely difficult without some very expensive and complex software and video studio equipment. I learned some techniques in After Effects that were supposed to make an enlarged video look better (certain blurs and sharpeners, deinterlacing, etc) but I was NEVER satisfied with the results. Every technique made the enlarged version ...

If you want to stream with Justin.TV, you can download FFSplit ! http://www.ffsplit.com/ It is still in a BETA State, but it does run quite well ! Don't forget to follow every instruction that is put on the site. Good luck !
