Sending Live Video over the Internet

by jgwagg / April 21, 2006 12:08 PM PDT

My daughter is getting married this summer. Her 93 y/o Grandmother, who lives a thousand miles away is unable to travel and will not be able to attend. I would like to set up something so that we could stream a live video of the ceremony to her. Both computers will have a high speed connection to the internet. All advice will be appreciated.

Streamin Video can be done,,
by jcrobso / April 24, 2006 1:14 AM PDT

With Real player and RP server, they have a free down load of the producer and the servier for trial, good for one year.
Another is to do web cam, USB camera the uses AOL, MSN, Yahoo instant mesageing to do the streaming, easer to setup but quality is nat as good as the realy Player.
You will need an analog video capture card to use a video camera. John

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
