What is the least painful way to achieve this?:
Video and audio recording on a HD video camera (NOT a security camera) in XP quality, with 1 HDMI output and WIFI capability
Somehow connect the camera to a laptop and send the signal live to the Internet (the distance between laptop and camera is not a problem so I would prefer using HDMI over WIFI because of the problems involving WIFI)
Destination: a remote server, which will be web streaming the signal to clients (I'm not in charge of the streaming part, just until the signal reaches the server)
My trade is computers (I have no problem with the computer part) but I have almost no idea how video and audio recording works, so I would really appreciate basic information or sources. I have tried looking for information and tutorials on this subject but EVERYTHING I can find is related to IP surveillance video cameras, instead of a personal video camera sending the signal to a non-surveillance server.
My plan so far is:
-Record the signal
-Send it to the laptop (I would require a HDMI capture device because the laptop only have 1 HDMI output and not input)
-Establish a VPN (virtual private network) between the laptop and the server over the Internet
-Send the signal from the laptop to the server and store it on a shared folder
Is there a better way? I'm totally open to software and hardware suggestions. Thank you.
