Does anyone know of a fairly stable video stream encoder running on Windows that will encode to h.264/AAC and work with a Quicktime/Darwin streaming encoder? I have devices that can bring the video/audio in as a DV "signal" over firewire but I would want to cut this to quarter size and encode for streaming. In the past I've used QT Broadcaster but now I don't have a Mac available to do this task. I think VLC might do this and is my next stop but thought I should ask about other software that can do this. Several years ago I looked at Wirecast but there was a bug in the QT streaming as well as a few other issues, maybe they have been fixed but maybe not.
Also are there any "decent"* USB devices that can take analog standard definition video and provide them to the encoder? Hopefully something I can buy (in store) at Bestbuy or Walmart, etc. It opens up choices in computers since some do not have (can not have) a firewire card installed.
* Note that decent is referring to standard definition from a composite video source, there is only so much I can expect from something that might be carried in a big box store. Timeframe is of course short which pushes me to make due with what I can grab instead of buying and building something good with an Osprey card (or similar quality). Not looking for Olympics quality here, just a demonstration of what can be done if the resources (time, money, and people) are presented. Decent specifically is about the quality I can get from an old Dazzle firewire converter but something that connects USB 2.0, so obvious to anyone that owns/owned one of these Dazzle devices, not great but passable.

Hope is the trap the world sets for you every night when you go to sleep and the only reason you have to get up in the morning is the hope that this day, things will get better... But they never do, do they?
