    A customer recently contacted CCTV Camera Pros and had the following questions related to how to setup CCTV cameras for live website video streaming.

    I am looking to set up a live web feed from my beach house to my web site. I am looking to find out what I would need to do this. Below are some of the requirements I am looking at.

    NOTE: I recently updated this post. Please be sure to see the follow up post below.

    Here is my original recommendation.

    1. Outdoor Camera with long range lens (was thinking a box camera with 60mm)

    2. Some kind of specialized video server that can enable me to push data directly to LIvestream or Ustream

    3. Would prefer .264 or MPEG4

    I can get power and to the camera so either an analog or IP camera is fine. I also have the connection to high speed internet connection. I would prefer not to use a full PC as I will only have access to the equipment every 4 months or so. Also Power is Extremely expensive so I am looking for something efficient.

    My recommendations for this customer:

    Here are two option for you to consider. The first does require a PC and uses a service like uStream or Livestream to broadcast. This option should be used if you expect to have more that a few simultaneous users viewing the video stream at the same time.

    Please take a look at this article I wrote that explains how to use CCTV cameras for live website video streaming using services such as uStream or Livestream.

    Using CCTV Cameras and uStream for Live Streaming Video

    A high resolution box camera in an outdoor housing is a good choice. Here are two box cameras for you to consider: (6-60mm lens) (5-100mm lens)

    Here is a weatherproof IR camera (built in night vision) that is also worth considering:

    The second option works very well for websites that do not expect to have a lot of users viewing the video at the same time. This option uses an IP camera and does not require a PC.

    The setup can be found in this article "How to Embed IP camera live video in a webpage".

    Please let us know if we can help further.

    2017 Topic Update: Use YouTube and Facebook

    A lot has happened since I originally posted this over 4 years ago. YouTube and Facebook have enabled live stream video for all users. In most cases, people should take advantage of these tremendous video streaming platforms.

    Here is a article that I wrote recently that I highly recommend. There are two demo YouTube live stream videos in the article where I explain how-to use HD surveillance DVRs and CCTV video multiplexers to create a multiple camera video streaming system.

    CCTV Camera Pros now sells multiple camera streaming systems and offers free consultation services here.
