I've to set up a website which will broadcast live video.
A camera recorder will be pluged to a laptop. The laptop will send the data to a server (same as the http server)
The video will be broadcasted through a flash player.
What are the tools which i could use to do such task ?
The server is a linux platform (debian/ubuntu-server), the laptop is Windows (XP/2000), the camera is unknown.
- will do i need a 'client' on laptop to send data to the server ? Which one ?
- Will do i need a 'server (software)' to stream the video ?
- Which flash player could i use ?
- What should I know before to do that ?
Is there any open source software to do that ? paying ones ? How much ?
