    Live media streaming to pc's

    I have been asked if I can find a way of streaming a live feed from 1 of our camcorders to various pc's throughout the school.

    Has anyone done this or got some ideas on how to approach this ?

    Thanks

    Simon

    I think VLC Media Player can do that. Haven't done it myself but they have a how to guide here.

    Hope it helps.

    At the last school I worked in we used a Windows Media Server to stream both media files and Live Video to multiple machines within the school.

    Was stable and reliable and relatively straight forward to setup.
