Question

Educational video streaming howto?

by icnetforums / September 20, 2012 5:53 PM PDT

hye,

I would like to be able to easily stream live academic lectures over the internet.

What would be the easiest and cheapest setup? I thought of new iPod touch for capture and either the same or apple TV, connected to a video projector on the other side.

I have DSL, but only 5-8 Mbps. Would it be better to use FaceTime or Skype for that?

When streaming the video, can I simultaneously save the video and/or audio of the lecture on the source iPod touch?

Other question : I would prefer to be able to plug the iPod touch directly to the ethernet, rather than using wifi. Is this possible?

Thanks for any help on this.

Why not ask the IT staff of your academy?
And why not publish it via youtube? They seem to have the right infrastructure.

Well, we're not that professional you know. I was thinking of something a common person could set up.
I was just wondering whether a FaceTime video call over the internet could do the job...

What's important, we need live streaming, I'm not sure youtube does this.

I'm afraid that both Skype and FaceTime (and MS Messenger by the way) only support one-to-one communication. While I think that you expect a situation with one speaker and (much) more then one receiver at the same time. And that would need a server setup. Not something for a common person like you and me to do.

hye,

actually that's what I have in mind. There's one speaker, and only one receiver needed, because the receiving iPod/appleTV is connected to a videoprojector for all of the students to see...

If there's some Apple device that can connect to a projector and runs Facetime on the other side, I'd try that first.
