    Hi,

    I'm a streaming novice. I've tried finding the answer to this question in the help section and online, but couldn't.. Hence, the question.

    I need to receive cable/satellite channels and stream them out to proprietary software that can receive an RTMP stream input.

    From what I've found while researching this topic, I need to do the following:-
    Cable/Satellite Set-Top box Component output -> Blackmagic Intensity Pro inserted into Linux box converted to MPEG TS -> gstreamer software -> RTMP

    Do I have it right? Is there a better way of doing it? Is it better to use Wowza instead of gstreamer?

    I imagine I will have to setup this up at home. Is there any colo/hosting provider that will host the STB + server box for me? Will Wowza cloud version also host the STB for me?


    Again, I'm sure this is territory that has been explored before. So I was hoping some of the experts here can point me in the right direction. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks a lot,
    Jug

    you want to stream it out to watch someplace else

    buy a sling box, or one of the other devices, that attach to your cable box and stream over the internet to your mobile device

    Thanks, but I don't want to watch it myself. I want to send the stream to a server that I've developed that will ingest it and create video art with it.
