Need sortware to upload webcam video


OS -- ubuntu 9.04


I have a Logitech QuickCam S7500. Or what camcorder to buy?

What software do I need to upload to places like 'ustream', chat rooms, etc.

The camera is reconized by 'Cheese', Pitivi, XrawTV, camorama.

I get images of me on the screen. I could go in the bathroom and do that.

I want to share some real time activities with some friends around the world.

Thanks
Dave

It seems to be working

We don't want to know why you are going to go into "the bathroom and do that."

I expect you'll sort something out.

My bad, I led you astray. I want to be able to show people in Chicago, Calif, Fla, etc what is happening on the convention floor in real time. ( Not video on demand ).

I'm too ugly for the mirror or monitor screen.

You can use almost any camcorder if you hook it up to a TV capture card. Now getting one that lets you hide all of those icons on the output.... Or one that stays on if you're not using it to record.

HV30 is supposed to make a decent webcam. You need firewire and a decent computer though.

By show them, do you mean old style webcam stuff with 5 fps or lower? Or actual video at TV+ quality?

This part I kind of understand. I am copying some HI-8 tapes to disk. I use basically this command line:
Code:
cat /dev/sdb1 > videoname.mpg
The word capture is what is confusing me. I want to up load. How do I upload with a capture card?

I would like to do 25 fps to 30 fps but not necessarily HD.

Maybe you want to stream video?

Try searching on network video stream

Here's an (old) link to give you an idea of what this means http://pcquest.ciol.com/content/linux/103040302.asp
