  2. Hi

    you can use:
    a webcam
    a camcorder with an hdmi output and an elgato hd capture 60 for example

    You will need streaming service as livestream.com or dacast, or equivalent



    Best regards,
    Peter

    Hi
    i need to stream on interne meetings from my association.
    Some of the people are not living in France.
    I just need to upload stream (not a conversation like skype)
    the quality must be good to be able to watch on a large screen (not a laptop) because there will be ten persons in a country for example

    thanks

    This will be regular and long time or occasionally for limited amount of time? What kind of bitrate/bandwidth you will have available for this?

    Simplest approach seem to be: take decent PC with some decent USB camera, use ffmpeg and start streaming with H.264 codec.

    I use to capture (to file) ffmpeg with this kind of syntax"

    Code:
    @set SAVESTAMP=%DATE:/=-%_%TIME::=-%
    @set SAVESTAMP=%SAVESTAMP:.=-%
    
    @echo Time start is: %SAVESTAMP%
    @SET x264opts="level=4.1:qp=26:vbv_maxrate=32768:vbv_bufsize=16384:qpmin=4:cabac=1:threads=auto:nr=500:no-psnr:no-ssim"
    @ffmpeg -rtbufsize 7.68e+008 -video_size 1600x1200 -f dshow -i video="USB Video Device" -c:v libx264 -preset ultrafast -tune zerolatency -profile:v high422 -x264opts %x264opts% -x264-params %x264opts% -vf "hqdn3d=8:8:8:8,tblend=all_mode=average,decimate=cycle=2,drawtext='fontfile=Envy_Code_R_Bold.ttf:fontsize=64:fontcolor=black@0.9:box=1:boxcolor=white:boxborderw=8:x=(w-tw)/2:y=1200-64-th:text=%%{localtime\: %%d\\\/%%m\\\/%%y %%H\\\:%%M\\\:%%S }',format='pix_fmts=yuv422p'" -shortest -movflags faststart -y -f mp4 "camera_%SAVESTAMP%.mp4"
    Works on my relatively slow notebook (core 2 duo T9400 @2.53GHz) sufficiently fast (real time) adding audio, muxing and streaming should be possible without problems - this is low cost solution.
