Live Streaming Video

Hey everybody,

I have a municipal client that would like to integrate live streaming video of one of the city park areas into their website for the community to be able to watch.

Has anyone attempted this or have any suggestions/solutions?

Does the park have an existing cam set up with a site? You could always try embedding their existing video into your site. You can see an example (Mer de glace, Mont Blanc) on the right side-bar here -
or check out if your park is listed here- .

I'm looking into those links you sent me to see what I can find. No the park does not have a webcam set up now. I wish they did as it would make my job easier, however since they don't and my company doesn't provide the equipment nor has ever dealt with setting something like that up I wasn't sure where to look. Thanks for the links, it's a bit of a start, and hopefully I will be able to figure it out.

If you come across anything else it would be much appreciated.

Thanks again.

The closest I've come is a still image webcam with an image that updated every minute. That's pretty simple to do with some JavaScript. If you're doing actual video, then it depends on what kind of streaming technology you'll be using.

Yuu can use my add-on and Ustream

The advantage of Ustream is that they have digital camera equipped with WiFi and Ustream support

You don't need any PC but just the Internet connection to start the live cast.

Sample: Akihabara live cam (I'm not the broadcaster)

Hey thanks, I will certainly look into that. It seems that there are certainly a few options for integrating into the site, I guess now we need to figure out the equipment end of it which I think will be the more tricky end of this project.
