How to Stream Your Own Programming
Streaming Video - Equipment
Streaming your own programming is becoming much easier to do, even for the beginner. In this series weÌll review some of the ways to do this. WeÌll conclude by showing you how to upload and post your streaming content.
Step 1: PC
Your PC requirements will be based on the editing program you use, your capture card and the streaming video authoring program. WeÌll be using RealProducer as our authoring program of choice. The requirements are as follows: minimum requirements - Windows 95/98/NT4.0/WinXX, 16MB RAM and any Pentium processor; recommended requirements - Windows NT/Windows 2000, 64MB RAM and Pentium II processor. You can also use Apple Macintosh computers.
Step 2: DV Cam
If you want to create original video content to stream, youÌll need to shoot some footage. You can use several different types of cameras. There are DV and Hi8 cams - the DV format offers better quality since it has the IEEE 1394 port that lets you import footage through the capture card without any quality loss. But since streaming video involves compression, you can use your Hi8 camera and your video will nearly identical to the DV quality.
Step 3: Capture Card
There are other types of capture cards on the market, mainly JPEG/MPEG and IEEE
1394 compression cards. You can most likely use either one, depending on your editing
and authoring software. There are many types of capture cards currently out, but before buying one, make sure that it works with your editing and authoring software. Note: Motion JPEG cards are not supported if you want to capture directly into RealProducer.
Step 4: Editing Program
There are many types of editing programs out there. RealProducer also gives you the option of buying an inexpensive editing program called GRiNS Editor Pro for RealSystem G2. WeÌll be using Adobe Premiere for this series.
