View Full Version : Live Video Streaming to Website Technical Question

02-24-2011, 02:54 AM
Hi Forum Members!

I am novice to intermediate with DW. I am trying to stream a live video/audio feed to my website. So far I have acquired the following:

1. Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder 3.1
2. Adobe Flash Professional CS5
3. Adobe Flash Media Server 4
4. Dreamweaver where I want to put it all together

I'm trying to stream my own channel live but do not want to use Justin.tv or UStream or any other service that is going to advertise around or control my stream. I want to set up a dedicated computer with encoding software and server software that can stream my live feed 24/7 on the website I am designing in Dreamweaver.

I can get the video into the Adobe Encoder no problem. My question is, How do I then get that signal into a media player and onto my site using code. Here is an example of a Justin.tv channel in a media player and it is nice and neat in just a handful of lines of code. I really like the media player they use too because the controls fade. Here is an example of what I would like to do. I just don't want to use the usual; I want to set it all up internally without using outside services:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="325" width="325" onclick="return false" id="live_embed_player_flash4" data="http://www.justin.tv/widgets/live_embed_player.swf?channel=news_stream bgcolor="#000000">
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="always" />
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" />
<param name="allownetworking" value="all" />
<param name="movie" value="http://www.justin.tv/widgets/live_embed_player.swf" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent">
<param name="flashvars" value="channel=news_stream&auto_play=true&start_volume=0" />
<embed src="http://www.justin.tv/widgets/live_embed_player.swf" width="325" height="325" allowfullscreen="always" allowscriptaccess="always" allownetworking="all" flashvars="channel=news_stream&amp;auto_play=true&amp;start_volume=0"></embed>

Can anyone who is seriously knowledgeable please hold my hand and give me some specific directions on how to take the signal from the Adobe Live Encoder 3.1 into a media player just like the one above and get the code I can then use to add my video to the website?

I appreciate you for taking time to read and help a fellow trying to learn.
