I found a new way to stream video without converting to NSV

Hello, Thats Right!!!! Someone may be doing this already but, I have not seen this posted anywhere on Winamp's NSV Forum. So I found a way to stream all my videos without having to go thought that process of trying to convert all the big files to nsv formate just to stream. So I tested the new way of streaming with NSVCAP and playing the video from some not so free software called WebcamMax. It seems to work very well pluz you can use the software to stream your webcam(s) at the same time with you video. The only problem I have is I can't get the audio to play in NSVCAP. So, if you will like to try this out you can search for the software or PM when we can bring something new to the NSV Field. This software can be also be used to add banners and effect to the stream.

We already have a far better free tool.


We can mix 2 camera and 2 avi's and add text, add flash animation.

Can you change the channel of the tv tuner with that software?
Can you control two tv tuners and do Picture in picture?
Can you use sliders and buttons to control blending during the broadcast and stack the layers in any order?

We can.

All free.... And our audio works!

You should also add, an options to the poll.. "no , because this is already available for free"

Why dont you find out about their burn-tests of the audio and video syncronization and how long it lasted, how many frames, and what was the end result audio/video sync timing.

After 48 hours of hard capturing, Our 'virtual device' had not dropped a single frame,and was within 5 miliseconds of stream time.

Give us some real numbers.

Lol, Well as the other one may be that same and free. But, you have to give them more things to pick for. The only reason I had no audio to the stream is because I was testing it with Vista but it will work better on XP. I'm not trying to say its better but just show something a little new. You feel me??

What I feel is a program writer pretending to be an anonymous user trying to sell his own program.

And yes, RGBcam is free.

With "FlashCam" the latest driver for rgbCam broadcast center, we can capture your webcam from across the internet and broadcast it.

Literally, I can point you to a swf file, and I can load your camera from across the internet, and stream it to my server!

Try that one at home!

Heck ... try to do this http://thebitstream.com/flashcam.nsv

What are you talking about? I'm nowhere near a program writer. I'm Just a DJ/NSV Streaming/ and I use to own and work for a Shoutcast Hosting Company.

And yes, RGBcam is free.
RGBcam has not much. Where is the Video preview and plus Looks like something a 15 year old put together with VB. You build that?

I have my doubts with the 'poll' and all...

Yeah, I built it for about 6 people who didn't ask for video preview.

I think having a flash api to add animations and effects is way better than what I see you pipmpin'.

Yeah, you are obviously no programmer and know nothing about directshow...

I guess so. But good work with your program and for the use of maybe the program I just told everyone about. But, they have a free one to us but I don't like that you have to have there logo in the stream. I started using the program with UStream and today I said let me see this works with NSV and it did. But, not going to keep going on with something I don't own and just trying to tell everyone about. Add a Video preview to your program and so better effects plus a way to see what video input source your picking and the two program may be alike.

*device names...noted

nsvCap IS the 'preview'.
This is for production streams. Any "previewing" was done in preproduction.

I still think having the ability to take Adobe CS3 swf files and add them to the stream in 'real time' is so much better than adding avi's so you will never see a video preview window for choosing avi's. You may see 'device names' but Im not into holding peoples hands... Either you know how to broadcast or you dont.... I can be hired just like the 'Performance Sports Academy' did to install broadcast management services.

Real Good Smelter, I have not tried it with swf files but, I thing it will work. Both programs are a new good start to get more people to start streaming is all I'm trying to do. They seem to take out the need of having to do the long wait just to get the movies or videos over to nsv form. Does the program do green/blue screen effect or a way to put a live clock in the feed other then with a swf file?

yes,

Im running a demo for a potential client right now.

it is a "anti luma-key" blend. Click the "Radio Tacoma" link in my signature, and select the "Blender test" stream in the player.

Yeah, to bad nsv doesnt embed in myspace like live flash does.

Yes, Just trying to get people away from that long wait of waiting to convert videos. I love that your flash player work in myspace. I know NSV can't do that.

Un fortunatly they strip out "allowFullScreen" so that fullscreen button wont work.

By joining the redlamp network.

You will need to install a red5 server somewhere first.

Its all administered from my web site and I'm selling month-to-month contracts, priced depending on your need for my help.

A demo can be arranged...

But, on the real. No, I'm not the own. Just found out about this software last month when I wanted to start doing Ustream and it worked great with it. So, I just wanted to share something I found online with the rest of the NSV users. If I was the owner I would have told everyone at first. But, I'm not. I added to poll to see if they thing this would help so of the newbe and users that was lazy to convert a large file.

HA ,

Same rgb broadcast center with the updated two output.
The big fun is the flash->to->'FlashCam where the flash becomes embeded. THats how I did the 'white-board' widget.
Its how Im building the 'Instant Replay' Widget and the 3D 'Score Board ' widget for my client,

http://performancesportsacademy.com/

They are using my pay-view credit card billing system and want to enhance their stream.
If you program flex or flash, I can share the action script class that makes it possible.
