James Newman on TrinityDigitalMedia.com

Hey Paul, I’m a typical rookie trying to get setup to live stream our church services on our church website. I am wanting to just start small for now. We have been recording audio on a Zoom H4n Digital recorder. I have installed Flash Media Encoder on my Macbook. I’d like to use the audio in my live stream from the Zoom H4n and the video from a DSLR camera. I have a Canon sx30is camera, and am not sure if I need a capture card. I tried to plug a a usb plug from my Zoom H4n and a usb from my canon sx30is, but the Flash Media Encoder only recognized the H4n for the audio, but not my camera. Do I need a capture card? If so, which one would you recommend? Any other suggestions or corrections to what I’ve done would be much appreciated. Thanks for your time.
