Subject:   SPAM-MED: [GlobalRevolutionMedia] Livestream vs Wirecast vs Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder

hi peeps


so the time has come to review some of our options in streaming.

ideally, we should be using a white label service we can brand and

control. but that takes $$$.


in the meantime:


- tonight for a client i tried to stream using Procaster 20.2 - what a

nightmare - grabs all system resources and lists usage at 100% and

leads to total stream fail. i'm testing later which version to roll

back to successfully and will let you know. its a known issue in the

livestream forums. ugh...


- i've also used wirecast - which version Vlad are we shooting to use?

v3.x is pretty stable but 4.x is nicer. i'm not sure if there are

newer versions. the audio issues, however, ugh...


- a new player - Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder - works with

livestream accounts - lets test this - supposedly CPU/mem lite


eventually, for the studio, i see a Tricaster 850 and HDMI cameras -

but that's down the road. we should see if we can find a livestream

white label service that might donate or give a discount. livestream

is so wonky lately and frustrating to work with.


what other options - Ustream,, Boinxtv? also some

other services that aren't big brands...suggestions?


lets actively research a longer term solution.
