How to organize a live video on the site

What they do not come up with to entice users to the site. It's not good or good to judge me. Today we'll talk about streaming video streaming on the site. I recently collided so I will share with the users of the forum. So, it does not matter what you broadcast, a football match or an IT conference. We need:
Laptop or netbook
Access to the Internet
Server (Preferred)
We connect the camera to the laptop. Install it Media Encoder. For flesh - a free version of Flash Media Live Encoder. In FMLE we specify the address of the steam server, set the broadcast format and press the large start button. But with the beginning we need the media server itself, you can use the services.

Services that allow you to broadcast a lot of video, but not everyone can work with RTMP protocol. Basically they are designed to work with a web-camera, but we have another task. Having spent a little time, I found a couple of suitable services, 2 of them support the Russian language.
Here are these services:
Register and get the import file settings. Either there will be provided a URL and NAME which you need to enter most in the FMLE program. The link for posting on the site will be provided directly in the broadcast itself. I recommend to register in all 3 services and thoroughly test. Neither do I want to impose, but I liked Yatv, the broadcast less buggy. But, unfortunately, they have limitations on resources. There is another option to use your server.
Own server
The license for FMS is very expensive, so the budget option is Red5 for CentOS. Manuals on installation a lot, both in English and Russian, so I do not see the point of painting, see for yourself.

Is it Worth Investing in a Mini-Laptop?

For years, consumers were into large laptops with the biggest possible screens. Some screens are even the same size as large desktop computer sceens. However, these laptops are not always practical if you travel around with them frequently. Frequent travel requires a device you can store it in, such as mini luggage. This in itself can be a hassle.
Mini laptops, also called miniature notebooks, solve this problem. The average size screen is eight inches. This is a good size to fit into a backpack, business case, or purse. All mini laptops are capable of accessing the internet and holding basic programs such as word processor. They are easier to use on a plane and in a car than traditional sized laptops, because you have more room to work. Mini laptops are also less expensive, with some manufacturers offering them at $299.
However, there are a few downsides of mini laptops. Since they are so small, they do not have the same storage capacity as traditional laptops or desktop computers. Therefore, they are not ideal for storing massive amounts of pictures and documents. These computers are also not good for gaming, because they do not hold enough memory. Mini laptops do not have the space for playing DVDs and CDs, though you can download movies and music onto them.
On the other hand, mini laptops are ideal if you need them solely for internet access or basic office documents. This is handy for a student who does not want to lug a heavy laptop around campus. If you already have a large laptop or a desktop computer, you may consider investing in a mini laptop as a supplement. You can use your standard computer at home or for functions that require more memory space while you can use a mini-laptop while away from home. Nevertheless, this newer technology is likely to improve over time.
