live streaming on a website
show user profile  zeefusion
I want to install a webcam in a location and be able to access the feed and stream it on a website. I know nothing about this sort of thing, does anyone have any tips, suggestions on how to go about doing this?

Assume that I already have permission, bet yet to have purchased any hardware or software. I imagine I would need a good server to store all the data?

If it could be done on WordPress that would also be great :)

On the cheap, you could use something like justinTV

If you are streaming, why do you need a server to store data?

How would i link to a camera? how does it work?

I didn't know if you could actually stream in real time, or if it actually just takes photos every 15 seconds or something and then it loads them on the website.

I just read this... You are going to HAVE TO HAVE a computer dedicated to the stream. does not connect to IP Based cameras. So the camera would have to be plugged in to a pc. But I think i need an IP based camera.

You can buy cheap IP-based cameras. You just plug them into the network, then set the firewall, etc to forward it properly. Should be pretty easy to get going. No server needed.

JustinTV needs Flash, I guess that's why it doesn't work with IP cameras.

The only ones I've seen aren't free:

But if you have good bandwidth, you don't need a service like that if you have an IP camera and not too many viewers.

An IP camera connects to your network like any other device. It has it's own IP address, which is why it's an IP camera. It doesn't need a computer to do this.

You could then be able to get to this camera's feed from anywhere on the Internet, simply by typing in the IP address of your network. Your firewall would need to be set up to forward the port to the right place.

In essence, the IP camera broadcasts the stream straight to the viewer, when they connect to it. It runs it's own little server, often with controls for the camera. You would be able to set all this up.

This is all presuming live streaming, and no recording.

That one doesn't work with WPA2, and is an outside camera. Would that suit your needs?

Will it be wired directly to the network, or will you use a wireless connection?
