So I'm not exactly an Ubuntu, or even a computer expert. I have a necessity to stream live video over the internet. Basically, my brother-in-law is getting married, and there are relatives in parts of the world who cannot attend, so I need to hook up a camera and webcast the wedding as it happens. Is there a not too complicated way to do this?
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit on an Intel Core Duo 2.93 GHz machine with 4 GB RAM.
Is there any software that could accept an input via firewire from a Sony camera or DVCAM deck in standard definition and send it out onto the net, or am I asking for too much with the limited knowledge that I have?
I'd appreciate any help you can offer. I've been reading the forums online but most are pretty old, offering solutions for older versions of Ubuntu. I'm hoping since it's evolution, things may have become easier.
