    Making a stream available on the interweb.

    We are about to do a project with our year 7 students where they will be looking after about a dozen chicks from eggs to hatching and then a bit longer, the staff running the project have asked if we can do an internal stream, which is no problem, but i'd like to make the stream available outside so the kids can watch it at home. I've never tried doing this before, so i don't really have the first idea about it! Oh, and before anyone thinks about it, I have no budget, none, nada! I have an XP/rmcc3 environment, my streaming options are currently VLC. My video hardware is microsoft lifecinema webcams (x2) which i can make into split screen with VH multicam studio. But i have no idea how to make this externally visible.

    Something like the free options of LiveStream or Ustream?

    Right, I've had a look at this lot and i have some problems with them...

    Yawcam - I can't configure my router to let it out as its owned by SWGFL who want 39 to configure it.

    Ustream - Plonks adverts for shows with ladies in bikinis talking about innapropriate things in my 'suggested channels'

    Live stream - prior to streaming my 'rated G for general viewing' channel, shows an advert for an 18 rated computer game... Not helpful!

    Any more ideas

    X split costs money, and doesn't work behind our proxy and we don't have any macs we could use for this...
