This would be possible using OBS's BrowserSource. First, find the embed code for the stream (in YouTube you can click "Share" and then "Embed"). Find the src="" and copy the URL that's inside the quotes. In OBS, create a new Browser. Paste the previously copied URL into the URL field, and set the Width and Height to your canvas size (or your preferred size)....

The minimum software is hardware. You want specialized hardware for doing top quality live streaming encoding reliably. You could use something like the Black Magic ATEM television studio which includes 4 inputs and real time stream encoding capability to produce the conference really well or could use a cheaper stream encoder device that simply produces a ...

The obligatory ffmpeg answer (not a very good one, other answers still needed): You could feed your video through ffmpeg -vf drawtext=textfile=onscreen.txt:reload=1 With whatever other drawtext options you need to put your text where you want it, with the font you want. reload=1 makes it check the text file for changes every frame, but doesn't give you a ...

I'm pretty sure you can use vlc to both stream and restream it. I use vlc to stream all my tv channels to all my devices(rtsp, mp4, html5). Search for vlc media player streaming like https://www.videolan.org/doc/streaming-howto/en/ch04.html

I think that the issue is the video tag. The video tag does not support live streaming directly, see this question on SO. Specifically: A. This answer for a technical description of what you want to implement B. This answer for a code sample

If you just want a plain RTMP stream, you might look at the nginx-rtmp module which looks quite easier to set up 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 ...

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 re-...

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/

I would suggest you research a bit further and then refine your question. To me it seems that there is a bit of confusion in terms of the software components needed for creating a livestream. First you need to have a software component that acquires a live video from some device. This video needs to be encoded. Once it is encoded it can be streamed by a ...

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 ...

There are two key ways to deal with the inevitable latency of live video from the other side of the world: Ignore the video, at least for talent or guest queuing purposes. The person is fed mix-minus audio through their IFB. Since it is just audio, and historically was sent over a POTS telephone line, it can have virtually unnoticeable latency to the viewer....

The "JVC GY-HM200SPU 4KCAM Compact Handheld Streaming Camcorder" claims... "When equipped with an optional Wi-Fi or 4G LTE high-speed broadband modem, the camcorder can deliver a live video stream directly to USTREAM and YouTube, while simultaneously recording HD video internally to SDHC/SDXC memory cards. " I believe there are other camcorders in the JVC ...

Keep FLV but trim using demuxer seek and duration. ffmpeg -ss 00:00:03.000 -t 00:00:01.000 -i output.flv -c copy output2.mp4 Also, skip -ss if it's 0 i.e. stream start.

Download Sparkocam and your problem will go away. I am using a T3i and a T6i for the same live steam. Your other option is remove autofocus from the lens and switch it to manual

I use Streaming Video Provider - they give me the platform to broadcast live and a live chat integrated to it, while streaming, so that I can chat with my viewers while lecturing. I highly recommend their service: http://www.streamingvideoprovider.com/video-cdn-live-streaming-cdn.html

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 ...

I'm in a similar position to you and I suspect part of the problem is that my CPU can't transcode the stream fast enough, especially when running a player on the same machine. Check your CPU usage, if it's maxing out that's probably the reason for the frame drops. Apparently mp4box can be used to stream live DASH (it has a -dash-live option) but I haven't ...

For gear, I like this list: http://www.desktop-documentaries.com/cinematic-documentary-gear-package.html For software (I assume for editing), Premiere Pro is very capable and easygoing on beginners. Download a trial and see how you like it! Bear in mind, that both take time to learn in order to produce quality results, so unless you're a quick study, or ...

If you’re up for building your own server, and have some coding skill, then you could look at setting up a nginx server running the RTMP extension that can capture an re-stream live or on demand video. It can also do near realtime transcoding or "at completion of capture" transcoding using ffmpeg. For the system I setup, I send live video in using an IP ...

Yes, you will need an HDMI capture card. If you have a modern Mac, you can make do with this $145 device that plugs into its Thunderbolt port: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/ultrastudiothunderbolt/techspecs/W-DLUS-04

Yes, it's possible. Open Broadcaster Software is a free multi-platform solution that I know of.

I'm going to assume you want to view all 18 HDMI inputs simultaneously on a few monitors, then be able to send one of those inputs to an output for broadcast/presentation? I don't know what sort of effects you need, or anything else like that, but maybe this will get you on the right track. Or if you need the switcher to be seamless (i.e: no momentary signal ...

Only the 4K models of the Atom switchers support 1080p in 60 fps, like the ATEM 2 M/E Production Studio 4K. Although a software control panel is included, I would prefer a hardware panel. Switching between 18+ input sources will be so stressful, that you don't have time looking where the mouse pointer is. A hardware panel has big buttons and knobs that you ...

Mac Mini does not have HDMI input. GF6 has no video output through USB.

You need to edit it using an editing software like Premimere, Sony Vegas or any other. I don't know how you do it in Sony Vegas but in Premiere you just place both videos in the sequence and resize them. That's pretty basic editing, try to search for the best editing software that works best for you and search for tutorial about that software. If you need ...

All newer camcarders have wifi and can stream directly to a computer or even the internet. Here is a simple example http://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/HC-V250K.html scroll down to Real Time Broadcasting, Remote Shooting / Remote View

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 ...
