Broadcast your point of view with Livestream's new Google Glass app

Broadcast your point of view with Livestream's new Google Glass app | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

NAB 2014 wouldn't be the same without Livestream, one of the internet's most popular broadcasting services, introducing new hardware or software. As such, Livestream has just announced another way for users to share video on its site: an application for Google Glass. Obviously, Livestream isn't the first to bring this feature to the wearable set, since you can already use the search giant's own Hangouts app to broadcast what you're seeing.

New in Flash Player 11: Encoding Live Video to H.264/AVC

New in Flash Player 11: Encoding Live Video to H.264/AVC | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

The latest version of Flash Player (v.11.0) includes some exciting new features, including performance upgrades such as native 64-bit support, and asynchronous bitmap decoding. Perhaps most newsworthy though, is Flash Player’s new capability to encode live video streams to the H.264/AVC standard. This new feature will allow developers to create real-time, high-quality, live video streaming applications for chat, conferencing, and live event broadcasting.

 

The following article demonstrates how to take advantage of Flash Player 11.0′s new H.264 encoding capabilities within a video streaming application built using Flash Builder 4.5.

Streaming Video Technologies Panorama, part 3 : WebM Streaming

Streaming Video Technologies Panorama, part 3 : WebM Streaming | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

WebM is surely one of the hotest streaming topics right now, because WebM is one of the two final HTML5 video standards with H.264. When Google bought On2 in 2009 and open-sourced its latest VP8 codec one year later, two promises were made : providing a codec which quality can compete with H.264 , and providing it in a royalty-free way. On the quality point, the general opinion is that the VP8 codec is slightly less performing than H.264– but it can be an acceptable trade-off regarding the royalties point.

 

Precisely, the royalty-free point is the one which raises the more questions now, as MPEG-LA is said to have a lineup of 12 patent owners ready to claim their rights on intellectual property, as VP8 would use compression techniques taken from H.264. Seeing their fight against Google being a success would cause a major setback in HTML5 standardization efforts around open source solutions – WebM then being another coding technology subject to royalties after H.264. Nevertheless, the patent war has not started yet and WebM is still a good alternative to H.264, on the paper. And that’s why we are curious to know how we can implement it in our existing or upcoming workflows.

 

So let’s walk through the different steps of the WebM streaming workflow !

Intéressant j'suis un peu étonné sur la partie qualité et le terme "not commercially relevant" ça me semble tellement variable en fonction de la cible client.

Streaming Video Technologies Panorama, part 1 : Hardware-accelerated Encoding

Streaming Video Technologies Panorama, part 1 : Hardware-accelerated Encoding | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Maybe some of you remember the Tarari Encoder Accelerator for Windows Media which came on market in 2005 as a FPGA loaded PCI board. It was a 10K$ investment but it could seriously boost your encoder performances and it was a transparent solution for all encoders integrating Windows Media SDK. That was maybe the only real reliable option to do HD encoding decently at that time. More confidential were the Ambric cards for accelerating MainConcept H.264 and MPEG-2 SDK, which were found to be working with Inlet Armada transcoding farm.

Since these days, Tarari boards vanished, Windows Media encoding has been somehow outshined by H.264 and CPU performances have made great jumps, but the needs for hardware accelerated encoding solutions is still there, mainly because :
- H.264 encoding is also hungrily crunching CPU cycles
- screen types to feed have exploded with mobile, tablets, connected TVs and all other OTT devices
- adaptive streaming requires far more versions of the same file that previously mono-bitrate encodings
- available rackspace is not endless and it’s not convenient to manage hundreds of encoding nodes
- new formats like 3D and SVC are demanding strong encoding power
- you like to play with cool high-end encoders and you have strong convincing skills when it comes to make your boss buy expen$ive hardware


So let’s take a look at the different options available on the market now !
