    If you were going to setup live streaming via an IP Camera, which camera is the best. I know some don't support the rmtp protocol. PTZ is not needed.

    And don't you need to use a 3rd party encoder such as ZSplit?

    I am tasked w/ trying to setup a live webcam for someone.

    Is Youtube the best option? I think FB limits you to 4 hours of streaming.

    This will not be streamed from a mobile device.

    So, no fancy requirements if you've got a computer involved. I use Open Broadcaster Studio for pushing to Twitch, it'll just as happily push to Youtube, FB, etc. Comp pulls the feed from the camera, you can add overlays / etc in OBS, OBS pushes it to the service of your choice. Easy.

    Now, doing it straight from a camera is going to be loaded with limitations and restrictions that'll likely piss you off, but higher end GoPros can theoretically push direct to YouTube for example.

    This. But if you are using anything less then a webcam you want to make sure your camera will put out a clean hdmi signal. Many cameras will put in an overlay on the hdmi output. Things like audio levels and recording time and such. You want a clean output, then a capture device into the pc. I wouldn’t recommend a webcam. Most of them you can’t see the image if the subject is too far away.

    All I'm trying to do is live stream the drag strip. Nothing fancy.
