You want a Pan/Tilt head. Zoom will depend on having a camera that can have the zoom remote controlled and a remote control that can hook in to the zoom. A pan tilt head can generally either be left sitting on a table or threaded on to a tripod. They are, however, not cheap. Expect to spend at least $300 for a cheap one and more if the camera ways more ...

Unfortunately you are not going to be able to accomplish your goal. Two major factors impact this. First, color processing on different systems is going to differ. This will result in slight differences in the colors that are displayed because many video players apply "enhancements" to video and what you actually see when viewing the video in a browser is ...

Unfortunately, even if you could get an exact amount of the difference, it is highly unlikely that adjusting by that amount will fix your problem. Since a lossy compression is being used, the codec is deciding to alter the color to something that is more easily stored in a small space. You will likely get a different color artifact if you try to correct ...

You could create a droplet in compressor. Unfortunately, your options for destination folder are limited by this method to either source, desktop, cluster storage, or your movie folder. Since you don't want your watch folder endlessly copying movies, "source" is a bad choice, and you probably don't have cluster storage, so as long as you're ok with your ...

Working at this level, your best bet is probably to use a DSLR and use one of the hacks available to use them as a webcam via USB. Consumer web-cams use a very small sensor which makes it virtually impossible to get any kind of meaningful background blur. You really need the large sensor of a DSLR to best accomplish what you are looking to do.

It depends entirely on the policies of the game manufacturer and what they tell Youtube to do. Some game makers claim copyright over any content produced using their game. Some do not allow any video to be posted, some allow only videos from certain networks, some allow videos from anyone as long as they aren't monetized and some allow anyone to post ...

You need Quicktime 7 pro to get the full export options. Quicktime as it currently stands is a gutted shell of its former self. Can I suggest you use mpeg streamclip. Free, very widely used (by many professionals too) and a great tool for transcoding. That is unless you're handy with the command line, in which case you want ffmpeg.

Actually, your best bet is to use a PCIe or USB 3.0 HDMI input card, like a Blackmagic Intensity, which will take the clean HDMI output of many high quality cameras (e.g: a Nikon D600 or D800, a Canon C100 or C300, etc.) and make it available to other apps on your computer. This is what professional productions do for green screen work to ensure they're ...

Guess Polycom has something like that, PTZ camera that can automatically follow a presenter. It follows a special "tag" device that presenter should be wearing, but not his/her face. If more than one camera will be used there should be the video operator anyway to switch views, choose the best angle etc. Standalone PTZ heads for handycams or more ...

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-stream-videos-with-nginx-and-jwplayer-on-centos-6 makes Nginx look pretty simple to set-up as the streaming server. I've not used it but I have used jwplayer and that worked well for me (I was streaming from vlc/vlm). Another good option for the player end would be jplayer. Web Videos via Watch Folders ...

Xsplit is a popular software choice for people recording and/or streaming video games. It allows multiple inputs and can overlay video on top of video, as you'd need for the PiP effect. There is a small fee to purchase this, but would highly recommend it if you are serious about it. Another popular solution is Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) which is ...

This is normally done as a post production operation. Record the video of you and the gameplay and then sync them up in any video editing or composition software and it should easily allow you to scale down and position the clip of you over the video game layer. It will normally either be called picture in picture on more consumer targeted software or is ...

It honestly looks like something got corrupted with your export. Have you tried encoding it more than once? 12 megabits per second with a 24mpbs peak should be more than sufficient for high quality 1080p video. If anything, it may be excessive. The quality you are getting looks more like what I'd expect at sub-1 mbps video for this quality level. As an ...

I've messed with BBB, though no where close to those numbers. As the presenter, you can prohibit participants from sharing their video or audio, making it a one way presentation. I have a gut feeling though, that the server requirements would be significant for that many participants. We ran it on an old HP G3 and it worked , but slow for a dozen ...
