Live Streaming

What is live streaming?

Live streaming allows you to stream an event, e.g. basketball game, in real-time over the Internet.

What do I need to stream live video?
  • Camera
  • Laptop
  • Program (Flash Media Live Encoder) for converting the stream installed on your laptop
  • Access to website to embed the live streaming code

The video will use the live application within FMS to stream the video. The program on your laptop should concurrently save a copy of the stream to your laptop.

For specific instructions on this process please contact Media Support Services.

Saving and archiving flv

After your event is over, upload your flv to the VOD section of video.vcu.edu. This will allow you to stream the archive. See Streaming Flash for more information.
