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.
