Broadcasting of a Video Stream from an IP-camera with DigitalOcean

Hi, i`ve been searching to long to achieve a live broadcast to my webpage, and i want to do that with an IPCamera.

For all I know, a server connected to a ipcamera is necessary not to cause overloading of bandwidth caused by the growing number of customers who access the page.

My doubt is how to go about configuring a server as the DigitalOcean, for the streaming of an IP camera. The format is in RTSP that is not accepted by flashplayers, would soon have to have a RTSP decoder to FLV. VLC is a good alternative, but i dont know how to set up in order to transmit the streaming and match the flashplayer / flowplayer that is compatible with most browsers.
I need to install de VLC on Ubuntu? Or another OS?
m confuse with all this stuff.
Someone has already achieved success with this type of streaming?

It would greatly help because'm already on it for months and still could not solution.

  • Just checking to see if there is any answer to this post though it's 3 years old. Am stuck in the same situation.

  • Hi there, i found a solution not with real streaming but with snapshots. You could stream with some delay but it will still nice with Youtube and its free! You could event put your logo in it. I could last year embed live images with a a script i found by TheUberOverLord on the Foscam Foruns. Just basic configuration on the webhost/webserver and could successfully stream with 2/4 secs images to my site for free also! I respond this because i know the struggle it is. Any question you can ask me.
