Re: streaming a shoot

If you do it via YouTube you can use free Wirecast Play software.

Re: streaming a shoot

You need a computer, reliable internet connection, capture card, and a streaming host. YouTube, Ustream, and Livestream are the three that I've used.

Re: streaming a shoot

I believe YouTube still requires you to have at least... 100(?) subscribers to your channel before you can live stream.

I suppose it depends on budget and expectations here.

If its on the (relative) cheap, LiveShell is one option. I bought one last year for around $150 (I think). It used the RCA of a camcorder, then connects to a wifi network. UStream doesn't required $$$, if the client don't mind a few ads over the course of the show. So for the 2 or 3 weddings I did it for, it was a separate cam (my emergency backup) than my main DSLRs that got edited together later.

Heck, I even have one in the box if you that's the correct route for you.

Re: streaming a shoot

I would suggest YouTube. Livestream is also a great, reliable source.

Adobe Media encoder, although a bit outdated, is a good option and it's free.

Re: streaming a shoot

If there's no risk of copyright violation
Wirecast Play (free and for YouTube specifically) works fine.
If you need free, Youtube doesn't run insertion ads.
Free Livestream requires viewers to sign in but there's no ads. Livestream Producer (or Studio for Windows only) is free.
Free Ustream runs insertion ads. Ustream Producer ap (also related to Wirecast) is free.

If this is just a a paid one off event so you don't want to get tied into monthly billing there's DaCast.

I'm assuming you've checked out the documentation on the CX440?

CX440 WiFi Help Docs

Looks like you need either a WiFi router or a smartphone with tethering too.

I found out more about streaming from this camera. I opened a separate Thread:

Re: streaming a shoot

they asked my to shoot a soccer game with live stream on sunday 10 january.
I have never done that before and 2 of my 3 camcorders have wifi. (sony hxr-nx3 and panasonic hc-x920)

I tested with youtube live events and wirecast free version 6. With a usb webcam it worked to stream live and share this event.

Off course I can't use a webcam to film a soccer game because I need to zoom.

So I came across this video:


He uses a very cheap av cable to usb and it worked he said.
So I'm thinking about buying something simulair and use the av output (red/white/yellow) of my sony camcorder to connect to a usb laptop to stream live.

The quality will be dvd quality but I think it's good enough to watch live.

Anyone experience with this?

Re: streaming a shoot

I think the point any people here are missing, is that people want to utilize the BUILT IN streaming functions of the X70. I believe a post with all the verified step by step ways to display a live stream out of the X70 would be cool.

I like YouTube. I once did a live stream using a little SDI dashcam in my car hooked up via BlackMagic Mini Recorder to my Macbook Pro. Worked well, said Google + on it if I remember correctly.

Re: streaming a shoot

I've tried using my x70 to stream to Wirecast Pro (which has webstream plugin) and the camera wasn't recognized. I tried using the Teradek plugin (not hardware) for Wirecast and that didn't work either. The camera itself was working since I was able to get the udp stream in VLC on the same computer. The result was that I has to use Wirecast Desktop Presenter to grab VLC display.

Re: streaming a shoot

I hav tried "Screen Stream"and "VLC" for android. I can get it to go to youtube but have not got a livestream it seems to take ages for it to come through. But I am sure that someone with a bit more IT savvy would figure it out. Have not tried again as it used up my limited g4 data . I've only got 500mb. But it did work to a certain extent.
