    Broadcasting Video from Capture Card

    Hello,

    I wanted to know how it would be possible to broadcast video from capture card to the internet. I have a pc at home with a capture card and I would like to broadcast some video to the internet live. What I want to do is broadcast video from my pc to my server and users will connect to ther server and view the file. I have looked in the forums and read about Shoutcast but I really do not get how that software works. How it would be possible for me to upload the file that is being captured from my capture card to the server and at the same time the server broadcasts that file to ther users.

    Please help me out.

    Thanks

    there is special software.
    The users link to a steam..
    and then the file on your server is continuously updated.

    If you have a normal TV/media in card you can just use webcam software to broadcast, might not be what your looking for, but It has worked for me.

    I believe Darwin will do it as well.
