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.

First, I appreciate the purpose of your email, to actually address and get a response from your audience. Secondly, I do have a question, I can’t really find anything on church lighting or set (I.e. What lighting arrangements work best for certain segments like worship or the message, what would add some interest to the stage in terms of decorations, backdrop or anything else etc). I honestly don’t know if this is even your area, but would greatly appreciate it if you could respond with some rules or guidelines to explain what it even is that I’m supposed to be looking for in lighting and stage set. Thanks for your interest in helping reach the lost through technology and media! Keep on leading others to Him!

It is Sunday. aM and we are trying to use PP. A template has parked itself on the front of every slide. We have deleted the template and it is still there. Tried to create a new playlist and it is still there. Help
