I'm not sure if you understand the difference between a "container" and a "video format" (codec). From your description it sounds like the application you are using does exactly what you aim for. In both cases you end up with video coded in the H.264 "video format". It is just that the "transport format" is different. For streaming to Twitch and alike you ...

You can check out ManyCam, which might serve to be the right virtual webcam utility for you. Though there is a Pro version available, the free version of ManyCam would serve your purpose in my opinion. Features: Lets more than one application to access the camera feed together at the same time. Add static or dynamic effects to your webcam feed. Overlay ...

You have the option to record or livestream with your webcamera and from your desktop directly. You can add effects (statics and dynamics). You can add texts also. I am not 100% sure if you can add arrows. And I don't ...

I believe using Google Drives sharing technology will more than fit your needs. You can make folders and share numerous properties of said folder to other people. They don't even need a Google Profile but it is suggested.

Since Firefox for Android is hit and miss with YouTube background play, I've been using: NewPipe instead. It's free and open source, can do background play (saves data by only downloading audio), popup player over other apps, downloads videos, no app ads or video ads and you can subscribe to channels without needing an account/having to login! Use ...

Firefox for Android can play YouTube videos in the background, even with the screen off. It even provides a notification with a play/pause button.

Short answer: No. In the FreeGameDevWiki you can find an up-to-date list of web services of FOSS music (CC:BY and CC:BY-SA). Of those, the only one I am familiar with is Jamendo, and while it does offer something called “radios”, I do not think that you can exclude non-FOSS music from them (all music is CC, but CC:BY and CC:BY-SA are definitely not the ...

You can use plex to make simple media center that all people without technical knowledge can use and stream over the net or local network https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/200288666-Opening-Plex-Web-App Also, this is good to see kodi.

Based upon your requirements, there are a few options I could provide you. Please be aware I've used all the below options, but not to screen share music and movies, so these may all fail to meet your requirements. You can read up on most of below here on WikiHow. Chrome Remote Desktop - I do not have much detail on the security of the application, however ...

A friend of mine has had a great experience with Ampache. It is released under the Gpl v2, and has been in development for over 10 years. It has a clean looking interface for a web client. To my knowledge, and based on their website, it meets all of your requirements and allows you to download songs. Usage data, I don't know.

Actually, yes. VLC I have noticed that the popular, alternative media player: VLC, appears to provide options for this. If the menu is hidden, you should be able to access it with the alt key. Python Other than that; you can implement your very own, custom, client/server model with Python 2.7/3.x ((python2.7)/(python3.5)) and these modules: OpenCV (...

You could set up a Plex Server and then allow him access to it but it's going to be difficult as I guess you have a dynamic IP.

So as per this link but with some condensing and adjustments, first run these commands: apt-get update apt-get install git libv4l-dev libjpeg8-dev imagemagick cmake -y git clone git@github.com:jacksonliam/mjpg-streamer.git ~/mjpg-streamer cd ~/mjpg-streamer/mjpg-streamer-experimental make USE_LIBV4L2=true clean all make DESTDIR=/usr install Although I'm ...

I use VLC for streaming. This works with the Raspicam: raspivid -o - -t 0 -n | cvlc -vvv stream:///dev/stdin --sout '#standard{access=http,mux=ts,dst=:8090}' :demux=h264 But I prefer streaming via rtsp (you can then use VLC again for watching) raspivid -o - -t 0 -n | cvlc -vvv stream:///dev/stdin --sout '#rtp{sdp=rtsp://:8554/}' :demux=h264 Good ...

If you're looking to create your own software to do this on hardware you already have, I would recommend checking out the LEADTOOLS Multimedia SDK for this type of application. This library contains programmatic interfaces for C, C++, COM, and .NET applications. The LEADTOOLS Media Server would allow you to support basically any device with your video stream....

You can use iPCamera on your iPhone, but the app is not gratis. You can protect the access to the app by HTTP authentication. The username and password for this can be set up in the app preferences (in the settings). After installation and running the app on your iPhone, open your browser in your Android device and type address which the iOS app gives to ...

Have you considered SONOS, of course its not free but if you have your music on a NAS then you don't need any other computer hardware. Each SONOS speaker is a standalone speaker and as you add more they create their own mesh-network to deliver music to each other rather than using your existing wifi. For your $500 you should be able to get three PLAY 1's ...

TL;DR: I believe cloud gaming for such high profile games is not currently possible. Perhaps it will be in a few years time While Steam does offer a streaming service, it is meant to be used on local networks. PlayStation Now also offers streaming services for PlayStation 3 games. However, trying to stream a high-end video game like Witcher 3 online would ...

UMS (Universal Media Server) Should cover all your points. In particular I never had problems seeking, it supports almost any existing video format (ffmpeg-powered) and it automatically uses all the available bandwidth for maximum quality (but you can set a max bandwidth/bitrate if you want)

Just go to https://www.youtube.com/my_live_events and you're done. Live streams can be added to channels which are optionally paid.

If you thought Tonido might be an answer, then you should look at OwnCloud. This enables you to host your files locally or in a storage cloud and grant permission to users to access them from your home network or outside. I believe it covers all your stated requirements.

If you're okay with command-line, and you're on Windows, you can try ffmpeg's "dshow" option. First, run this command to see what DirectShow devices are available and what they are called: ffmpeg -list_devices true -f dshow -i dummy You will see the names of available video capture devices listed under "DirectShow video devices" and audio devices listed ...

Although I haven't used below stated software for this purpose I think that they will work for you. GrabBee - AV - user A. Koziol from amazon.com recommends this software. BS.Player PRO has support for capture and tuner devices (and Teletext support) and for capturing video from capture device to hard disk.

I know this is incredibly late, but try Splashtop. Maybe someone else will find it useful. Splashtop is basically a remote desktop software for Android, PC, MacOSX, and iOS, and they claim they can stream games.

This is probably not a problem you can fix from the player side. Some content Delivery Networks (CDNs) such as Edgecast and Akamai have configuration settings in their streaming platforms that provide the ability to scroll back live video streams. But that's not done in the player. Most simple players only buffer enough video to avoid stalls and sputters. ...
