    Question Very Basic Live Video Streaming Page

    I want a make a very basic live video streaming html page.

    I want like when you get in it will ask you for you video and when you say ok to stream you will be aired automatically. Only one person is good enough. It must be pretty easy but im not familiar with flash at all. So is there like a tutorial or step by step guding for this?

    There is nothing "very basic" about Live streaming. I'd suggest you get a better understanding of true streaming first. Building the Web page will be the very simplest part. Go through these sites and glean as much as possible:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streaming_media

    http://www.upstreamnetworks.com/home...lash-streaming
    http://www.phpmotion.com/

    Really man? Why dont you tell me i should learn binary first?
    Giving a link from wikipedia is not really a help. Nor saying read the entire phpmotion.com is not really helping. If i was to read that much i wouldnt be here asking an easy way for this.
    I would just go to library and get everybook about computers. Thas basically what your suggestion is.

    What i am looking for is an easy and quick way to create a webpage with live streaming video of myself in my office. Just like how ustream.tv does but i want without any ads or thirdparty websites. I have already checked windows media encoder and flash media encoder. i think they are pretty good but i couldnt figure out to post the streaming on the page.

    Making a single livestreaming video webpage, should not require to start from ground. Way bottom ground. It shouldnt be that hard to do.

    For someone asking advice from others, you sure the heck seem to know a lot about the subject!
    But since you asked…
    To stream your own Live video, no ads, no third party websites, you will need access to a streaming server, not just a regular web host server but a true streaming server. Contact your web host for more details.
    Probably the 2 most popular streaming server are Flash Media Server:
    http://www.adobe.com/products/flashmediaserver/
    cost for the license, about $1000 US.
    Or you can use Red5:
    http://osflash.org/red5
    open source… so it’s FREE! If you already have a dedicated server (typical cost, $100- $200 per month) which you will need in either case, you can install it yourself or hire an expert for $1000 or so to do install and config.
    Once you have your streaming server installed on your dedicated server, (either the Flash Media Server or Red5), then you’ll need to find a find an encoder that works with your streaming server. While it’s possible to use Flash Media Live Encoder with Red 5, it’s outside the license agreement, but works GREAT with Flash Media Server. So you’ll need to use the Flash Media Server or hire someone to write an app that allows you to stream to Red5. Of course if you decide to go with Windows Media Encoder, (much more restricted audience) then you’ll need to install a Windows Streaming server on you dedicated server account.
    But of course, I’m sure you are already aware of all this basic stuff. So let’s just skip right to the Web page. Easy! Simple as pie.
    Since this is a Flash Forum, I assume you can create your own NetStream Player… right?? Or at least you can download an use something like a JW Player… correct:
    http://www.longtailvideo.com/support...r-setup-wizard
    wizard sets up everything for you. Copy and paste that code into your Web page…
    Now how EASY was that!!
    Here’s a working example… just the url is changed:
    Code:
    <div id="vid_conf">
            <script type='text/javascript'> 
    					  var so = new SWFObject('video/player_new.swf','mpl','500','410','9');
    					  so.addParam('allowfullscreen','true');
    					  so.addParam('allowscriptaccess','always');
    					  so.addParam('wmode','opaque');
    					  so.addVariable('image','video/corey_intro.jpg');
    					  so.addVariable('file','Corey');
    					  so.addVariable('bufferlength','1');
    					  so.addVariable('streamer','rtmp://111.111.111.111/live');
    					  so.write('vid_conf');
    			</script>
          </div>
    And that my friend is how to display live streaming video on your own Website!
    Best wishes,
    Video Man

    Even though it was very sarcastic I liked it and it actually helped a lot more than the previous post.

    Thank you.
