Hi Experts,

I want to broadcast from my camera to the website.

Scenario I am shooting an event in my local area and it should be live on my website for public to see.

I am searching but not really getting any start.

Appreciate any links/ suggestions.

This is a bit of a two-part puzzle.  ASP.NET won't directly be any good for streaming live video because its too bandwidth-intensive.  I don't believe that ASP.NET WebSockets would allow a large number of users to connect with video.

So the site itself can be ASP.NET - no problem - but will need video embedding in it (like Flash/Silverlight etc) that is being crunched and streamed by a dedicated provider.

Although I haven't actually done LIVE video, our company uses this site for general video streaming to thousands of users per day.  It works well, and they do provide a live service but you might have to buy some extra gear to do live encoding and compression.

Hi Rouchie,

Thanks for the reply. But due to budget issue of the client I cannot go for third party services or even for media server.

Even with Expression Encoder we need to go for RTMP with media server.

Is there any other option?

Like capture images and store on the server and later play the sequential images as video.

Or anything better

Right okay, but please remember that encoding video is a very complex process, and to do it live will require a fairly monstrous PC rig!

It seems that you can do it with Expression Encoder, but only the Pro version has that capability to stream via IIS, which you will need.  Although I've not worked with live video, the set up process seems relatively straightforward once IIS Media Services is working.

This tutorial seems quite good.

You could take the publishing point code and create an ASPX (using HTML5) to hold it rather than develop a Silverlight app.  Visual Studio would easily knock up a blank ASPX/HTML file, then paste this into the body and adapt to your own server:

 <video width="640"
 height="480"
 src="/someFolder/myVideo.isml" 
 poster="/someFolder/myPosterImage.png"
 autoplay="true"
 controls="true" >Live Video</video>
