I've been attempting to livestream a videofeed. I want to display a live stream, which could be from a webcam, or live TV, or any other live feed. I'm developing a website which streams live video and the BlackBery is an integral part of our mobile service. We currently do rtmp livestreams, which feed to a flash player, as well as RTSP streams which play on RealPlayer on Nokia phones. I know from the BlackBerry specifications that BlackBerry can take an RTSP stream in 3gp format using H.263 video codec.
My questions are:
Can this be used to stream a live feed, as opposed to on-demand video files a la youtube?
If so, how?
Has anyone successfully done this? What encoding software, streaming server software, codecs, and protocol did you use?
