you load the pre-recorded video into the pc. Then you get the free version of VMIX2012 vMix - Download

So now you can take live video mix with recorded video or powerpoint presentation or get live desktop pc capture from network, record to disk, sned to streaming server.
Gentlemen, the word wedding implies so much here. If you are going in as stated above that is fine if the wedding is for your niece and you are doing her a favor. If you are representing yourself as a professional service provider and that is all you know about webcasting your going to burn yourself and your client. Tell them to use facetime or skype and stay away from it as a pro job. I have said to potential clients more than once "quality costs money, how good do you want it to be?"

I work on live corporate gigs where everything MUST HAPPEN as proposed. These days it can even come down to someones job being on the line. Not mine, I loose a client but someone else could loose there job because of me. Webcasting done properly can be awesome, but like everything else, you can hack it with a phone or you can put on a Show for thousands.

Been at this so long I'm rounding my years of experience down...not up!
