Feel free to list your live feed links here. I know I'm probably in the minority but sometimes while my show is running I like to see other people's shows too. :)

Here's ours...

Should pretty much be 24/7 now except when I'm tinkering... which will probably happen today since I'm still tweaking the audio. ;)

Here is my link. Normally I have a multicamera setup running but it will be down for a few days. Need to do a few repairs. Right now I only have one camera angle active.

Greg,

your video seems to stay more live and up with the sequence speed than others (speed of streaming I guess or cameras or processor?)

Anyway, enjoyed all the streaming. I want to do this hopefully next year.

I have my streamin speed set at just under what my network will allow, something like 756 mb, don't remember exactly since I set this up last year and simply used the same encoder. The only downfall is the rest of my network is slower than the old dial up, sending email takes forever and forget about anything like netflix. Drives my wife nuts for the month but it is worth it. Next year hopefully will be much faster since they are stringer fiber down my street as I type this. Asked them to put a node in front of the house. That would be awesome if they could do it.

Glad you enjoyed it, hopefully I can have the other five camera operational by this weekend.

Anybody else encode in H.264? If so, what settings do you use for when the lights are on? I can't seem to get it to work good. During the day it looks great... even now with it snowing out. But once the lights come on it's like my computer can't keep up with the encoding... even on really, really lax settings. I know I had a better picture last year but can't figure out what settings I used or those settings aren't working for me this year... I dunno.

BTW, I'm supposed to be getting some repeatered USB cables in this week so I can get a better angle of our lights... I can't wait. Actually... I can't wait 'til I get rid of this cold I have first!!! ;)

PMC,

Nice camera enclosure where did you get that fixture. I may need to steal your idea after all the problems I am having this wear with moisture!!

that enclosure is from an old motion sensored spotlight, I just gutted the wire, got some duct putty, a cheap mini CCTV camera, and a cheap polorized lens

I figured if anybody steals it, I'm out about $50

I got the multicamera feed back up, it still needs a little work (two cameras still not looking good) but it is there if anyone is interested in checking it out.

The link is posted above.

Well I am trying ot get my video running but am having trouble with the sound feed.

I am using Camstreams streaming video software and their "service" to push the video to my web page ( www.longlakelights.com ) but I can't get the sound to work on the page.

I see on my computer that is sending the video out that the sound intensity level under the video picture in the camstreams viewer window is ramping along with the music so it "appears" to be trying to transmit. Just can't get any sound on the web side.

I have tried several different bite rate settings in Camstream and have installed the Microsoft media encoder 9 recommended by camstream as well. Trouble with the encoder is that it does not appear to "see my camera which is a D-Link DCS-5300G IP camera that is on my home network and can be seen by the D-Link software on any computer on my network.

I am trying different bite rates with the encoder still but no joy on that as well as experimenting with the camstream bit rate settings with no luck.

Makes it kind of hard to watch the ligthts with no music :angry: you know?

Anyone have any suggestions I would be happy to try.

I did try Ustream, JustinTV, webcamXP, PKsoftware, all to no avail. The camstream software is the best running one so far just no sound. Sure would like to get this running before I have to shut the show off after the 1st. :rolleyes:

TIA and Happy Holidays to all.

Bill

Bill, I got your email. Sorry the reply has been slow, my plate has been running over.

It sounds like an issue with your sound card and the software accessing it. I would make sure all of the volume controls are set properly.

Shot in the dark here... check to make sure your recording devices in Windows aren't muted. I had a similar "issue" this year when I tried broadcasting on uStream.

I was attempting on using this software this year http://www.nchsoftware.com/broadcam/index.html in order to elimate the adds ustream uses. It will also put the entire stream under my control. It basically turns your computer into a streaming server. The stream is fine if you have 1 or 2 people watching but once you go over that most internet speeds will not suffice. Tested it on DSL, Cable, and Fios. DSL and Cable were ok with only 2 streams going out. FIOS was best hopefully can get that for next year!

If i remember corectly you can configure an IP camera to work. While I haven't tried it I remember reading about it.
