Do It Yourself Streaming
Streaming Video Tools – The PC

Creating your own streaming videos requires a few pieces of equipment as well as software. We’ll go over the basic tools that you’ll need to author your streaming content.

Step 1: PC requirements
Your PC requirements will be based on the editing program you use, your capture card, and the streaming video authoring program. Several streaming video authoring programs allow you to capture directly into it using a capture card. Let’s review some general system requirements.

Step 2: Monitor and Graphics Board
You will need a color monitor with at least a 256-color Direct-X6.0 (or higher) compatible graphics board. This is the very least – True Color 24 to 32bit graphics boards are preferable, giving you an accurate view of both your captured footage and the authored content.

Step 3: Memory
At the very least you will require 16MB RAM – 64MB or more is highly advisable. The reason you need more memory is because capturing and authoring are very intensive processes. If you have too little memory, your render time will be slow and your program may stall.

Step 4: Motherboard
The motherboard requirements depend on the capture card brand. But it is safe to say that your motherboard should have at least a Pentium 233 processor. Your PCI slot should be burst-capable. Check with your computer/motherboard manufacturer.

Step 5: Hard Drives
Hard drives are what you will be actually capturing your footage on. An A/V (audio/video) rated SCSI UW hard drive is best to ensure that your footage is transferred at the appropriate data rate. You can also use an UDMA IDE as long the sustained data rate transfer is 4MB/sec.
