    need software that can view camcorder live recording on pc

    I have a camcorder that is connected via firewire to my pc. What i want to is to be able to view what is being recorded on the camcorder in full screen. Does anybody know of a way to accomplish this.
    We are opening a section of the school and want to setup up a video camera to view the event and then on a pc in the main hall remote desktop the pc linked to the camera and project the video via projector.
    I have tried nero vision express (best so far)
    movie maker is clever enough to say you cannot view via /rd or terminal services.


    thanks

    You could download VideoLAN (VLC), and as long as the camera shows up as a supported device you will be able to stream it to another instance of VideoLAN on another PC.

    Only going from memory here, but have you looked at windows media encoder? http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...r/default.mspx

    Why not use a TV as a monitor?

    you are a star, i downloaded the windows media encoder 9 and after trialling it was able to stream a test dvd. I connected a sony camcorder to a p4 2.6ghz laptop, that ws connected to the network wirelessly. This went to a Hp2650 switch that was linked via fibre to our main hp 4108gl switch. The switch links up to segment B (coms cabinet b)via fibre. the fibre in cab B is fed into a hp 2324 switch that feeds the network port in hall. I was bale to view the dvd on another wireless laptop and play it via the projector onto the rather large screen.
    Got a lot of praise thanks to you. many thanks to you
    I will increase my donation to edugeek to £20 thanks
    and to the rest who replied thanks...
