Unfortunately, IP cameras are generally restrictive in what encoders will work with them.
You will need an encoder for your live stream, though.
After getting all your equipment into place, it’s time to set up your live channel.
This can be done in your Da Cast account or another service.
Adobe Flash Media Live is a free encoder which you can directly download from your Da Cast account.
Since we are talking about animal streaming, though, we can assume many will be using IP cameras.
