I am trying to find out if it would be possible to live stream a wedding over the internet. More details: My brother lives on the other side of the world and is getting married later this year. I would like to be able to stream the ceremony over the internet for the few people who can't make it. I also want to use this as a trial so it could perhaps become a service I can offer to wedding clients in the future. I'm panning to just use the camera static on a tripod, so not too much movement but will need audio. He's not paying so no real budget : (
I have a macbook with FCP, radio mics, a canon XF100 (although I would rather not take this if I can use something else) I am planning to buy a Go Pro camera and/or a consumer level hd video camera.
From what I understand the Go Pro can stream to the mac, but can't then stream to the net at the same time?
The macbook could stream to the internet using some software (any suggestions on free software for this job?) but how do I get HD video into the mac? Which camera/wires would I need?
I would rather not spend money on equipment I may not use again, but I am open to suggestions if there is a camcorder I can buy that will do the job.
The USB dongle allows for audio and video into your computer. Just Google "USB video capture" for some examples. I think the only other way to get audio and video into your laptop would be to replace the video card, which seems a little intense.
