I have a Sony HDR-CX330 HandyCam which does a good job recording low light events for us. Now I would like to stream some of these events live. The Camera has HDMI out, but I'm not sure how I get this into a MacBookPro. I think I need some kind of capture device but I'm not sure which one or how to search for it.

What do I need to get live video into the laptop?

  • What is you budget? What kind of quality are you looking for? What infrastructure do you plan to use for live streaming? These all matter in determining the best approach. – AJ Henderson May 14 '14 at 1:10
  • Also, which model Macbook? Old ones only have firewire, some have both firewire and thunderbolt, and newer ones only have thunderbolt. – Jason Conrad May 14 '14 at 11:14
  • 2014 MacBookPro. (apple.com/macbook-pro/specs) I'd like a generic solution for streaming: YouTube Live, Skype, etc. If I could get it to be delectable as a webcam, that would do for now. We are cost conscious. – John F. Miller May 17 '14 at 3:47
