Streaming video over internet using free software

by robwahl08 / December 9, 2008 4:34 AM PST

Does anyone know how to stream video over the internet using a log in. The requirements for this project are that it has to be a windows machine because of the dazzle video input and that the client machine is not allowed any software not included in a standard Windows XP. Thanks. Any help would be appreciated.

If just the software included with XP

Then its a dead end project. Just write it is not possible and move to the next project. XP doesn't serve up a stream so your project is dead.

you can use windows media encoder to capture and broadcast the stream.
windows media encoder 9

for login control, you'll need a web server. IIS 5 is built into windows XP Professional.

with this, any pc running windows media player will be able to access the stream.

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?
