    I wonder if you could find a guide on using vlc to do this. I know it can capture from devices and transcode onto the network but I have never tried it out.

    How to stream live tv or video with VLC/videolan - Forum - VideoHelp.com

    thats the steps for a tv capture card, but no reason why it wouldn't work for any device VLC can see

    Wait, what?

    You want it captured or streamed?

    I don't knwo if the serif software can do a live conversion - how are you connecting the camcorder to the pc? if through firewire VLC may be able to see the camcorder itself

    We require a live feed in MPEG2 format...

    Either a Camcorder or Webcam linked to a Laptop or PC with or without firewire port

    I might be a bit late on this, and depending on your exact requirements it might be too much, but we're looking at a ClickView Live box: ClickView - the digital video solution for schools

    You can connect up to 6 composite devices and it will stream them to up to 500 PCs at once across your network - camcorder, VHS/DVD player (for copyright material which cannot be captured onto your server), Freeview box... All inputs are password protected so students cannot watch freeview when they should be researching WW1.

    We have ClickView's main software (known as DVD Library inside school) which we capture all uncopyrighted VHS and DVD videos to then staff and students can watch them anywhere on the network, or (shortly) via links from our VLE to anywhere in the world.

    We're also looking at ClickView 24/7, but I'll let you browse their site otherwise it will look like I'm on commission, which I'm certainly not!

    Unreal Media Server download works pretty neatly, I used the live encoding options some years ago because the lag on the encoding was only a second or two. Well worth a look at for networked streaming.

    If there are spare network points in both locations fed from the same cab, you can patch them together and use a video over cat5 solution, which you treat as effectively one long video/audio cable.
