I have a video capture card, camcorder on NT server and would like to do live audio, video streaming with this across my Nt network to my Nt clients.  My NT clients have RealPlayer 8.0 installed.  What are the requiremetns on the NT server to do this. I know I need REalProducer to convert digiatal format from camcorder into streaming video.  Is this all I should need?  Do I have to have a REal SErver to publish this streaming Video?  If I don't need a REalserver, what else may I need installed?  Do I need IIS?

You dont need Real server. There are MUCH better ways (and certainly cheaper) to stream video to better formats than RealMedia. Get yourself a copy of the Darwin Streaming Server from http://www.apple.com/quicktime/products/qtss/ which is free and available for NT. It's relatively simple streaming software and can be played by most clients, not just RealPlayer.

THanks, But I have to use Realproducer or realserver, not by my choice.  Since I have to use this product.  Can I stream live audio/video using realproducer without using a realserver or is realsystem server needed also?

Wow, thats a pretty brutal requirement. Might want to explain to wheover required RealMedia that there are free alternatives that work better.

But, since youre stuck with it for the moment you will need to purchase realserver in order to serve the media files. It's definitely not cheap.

I installed the Leutron drivers for the video card alond with realserver and realproducer and was able to get this to work.
