    Live Video Streaming

    I would like stream live video from a CamCorder from one point to another point on an internal IP network. I was thinking that I would connect the camera with a Firewire cable to a PC. Then what. Do I need a server for this. There is only one point to another point. Any suggestions much appreciated.

    Thank you

    If your host machine is windows or linux, you can stream with VLC, just file > open capture device, choose the proper input, then check stream/save, click Settings... and set your stream options. I would use http, set the address to your internal IP address, a port of your choosing (the default 1234 is fine), MP4, check video codec, mp4v or h264 at 1024 kbps [you could go higher if you want], leave scale at 1; check audio codec, mp4a or mp3, 96, 2 channels, ok, ok.
    Then on your client machine, just open network stream with vlc or open url with another media player, http://[first.mac.hines.ip]:1234/
