Rob Ruehle via Twitter:
We have been using ustream for several years with one Web cam. I’m kinda stabbing in the dark I ordered a video camera years ago that never worked for what we needed it for. I just ordered a sony Sony HDMI camera and HDMI input card right after I ordered it I heard about something called VMIX which is being recommended to me but I guess the card I ordered won’t work the camera in the car have not came in yet I think they’ll be here at the end of the week

Thank you so much for your help.. I have some queations if you can help me with them?!
So i’m more thinking about live streaming though youtube!! I already bought a camcorder and thought that this will be will be the answer.. But seems its more complicated!
So i figuered that i will need a capture card between the camera and the laptop! What do u think are the best options?! And the cheapest of course.. Someone recommended blackmagic minni recorder?! What do you think?
My other question is do i need a broadcasting software when live streaming.. Or not?? Or is it necessary??
do you think i’ll be surprised with other stuff that i may need.. Please let me know !!!
Thank you so much

+Paul Alan Clifford I think he meant 360p… as in really low quality. Not 360degree streams 😛
