    Creating a streaming site?

    Hi,

    I am trying to run a stream from my home, just wondering does anyone have any experience on how to get this setup? I am just going to try run cctv footage from my tv and want to get it on to a website.

    Questions i got is:

    - How can i get it from my TV to my pc?

    - How can i get it on to the website, will there be a script i have to run or anything specific?

    - What sort of hosting should i be looking at? Depending on views?

    Sorry i know might be a bit of a newbie to this but i am looking into getting this running.

    Thank you

    You would need a "y" splitter for your video cable, have a capture card for your computer, assuming it is a windows computer, install windows encoder (if you'll find it on the Internet free for download), then do a search like "free live windows streaming" and use that service to test. Then you can decide what to do next.

    US homeland security/DHS doesn't seem to think so.

    you can webcast some live sports / events in your website, if you have the authority to do it. most of small website owners have not authority. If you can bought the authority then proceed. Also you need suitable web hosting plan to provide web casting. Live Streaming Hosting is the best choice for web casting sites. i am using hioxindia live streaming host for my live news casting website. You may ask web hosting providers directly before bought a hosting plan.

    Don't even think about it as the government tracks this down and you will be shut down and face legal actions either tomorrow or 5 years from now. The government just comes in and puts up a sign on your website and seize your domain.

    You can get in some serious trouble for streaming live content and be brought before the ICJ depending on what you streamed and what type of copyrights you infringed upon. I'd think it through completely if I were you...

    Depending on your setup, you could try Slingbox, or if your CCTV camera plugs straight into a PC or server, you could try Yawcam. You might also check if your security camera has a website with software.
