Does Broadcam support streaming from two cameras?

Title says it all.


i.e. switching between the two cameras from time to time.


Well..., actually..., the title doesn't quite "say it all", but here goes:


1. BVSS can stream as many simultaneous livestreams as you bandwidth and CPU can handle.

2. The Flowplayer (see the tail end of my most recent post: http://nch.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=15895 regarding Flowplayer use) has a configuration script you can use which will switch, at pre-defined intervals, between pre-defined multiple streams, either in sequence or at random (shuffled).

3. Have either a hardware (Grass Valley, etc.) or software (MediaLooks, etc.) Video-Switcher/TBC. This solution is okay if you are independently wealthy. (costs BIG $$$$$$).


The **really easy & free** solution:

4. Get the most current version of a **free** (yay!!!) program called ManyCam (Google it). It is a "virtual" video capture device which plays nicely with BVSS. It will recognize & make available all of your video capture devices within its interface/gui and then you set BVSS to use ManyCam as its capture source. From within ManyCam you can do real-time/dynamic switching between your various device sources. It also plays/broadcasts any & all of the videos that you are capable of viewing on your own computer (codec-wise..., if you can play it, then ManyCam will play it). It even has a separate "Playlist" section which allows you to add your video capture devices as Playlist Items (for designated periods of time) in addition to adding video/audio files.


Good luck,
