How to live stream from your webcam into Second Life

Below I posted an article about live streaming webcam Second Life and this is how to do it. This guide information source is the blogwebcam.

Livestreaming Webcam Second Life

1. Sign up for a free account at . Veodia output can be played in Quicktime, which is the format Second Life needs.

2. Check your upload speed using. Veodia requires an upload speed of 500+ kbps . Mine is around 800, but I think it may dip under 500 every so often, so I cannot stream from home.

3. Switch on your webcam

4. Select “Start new broadcast”

5. Press “start”

6. The footage is streamed onto a web page, for which you will get a link. This link is the same each time you restart the show.

7. Find the bit of code starting with “rstp”. This changes for each show. This is the code you will need for Second Life.
8. Log in as the island owner.

9. Go to World>About Land > Media.

10. Paste the “rstp” code into the box and select “set”

11. Check in the same window to check what is set as the “default media texture”. If you have not changed it, then it should be kind of grey.

12. Create a simple media viewer by creating a cube using building tools. Add the “default media texture” as the texture on the outside of the cube.

13. Ensure that your video preferences are set to automatically play video

14. All should work. I found that veodia streams varied, and sometimes you need to restart several times (and re-paste the rstp) to get it working. I checked in the web page that the show streamed to to see whether it looked flaky.

You want to transfer video from your Webcam into an event in Second Life or even in your land for friends seeing you in real life? For those who have been frustrated trying the good news is that it is possible, provided of course that you have access to broadband Internet with a minimum speed of around 500 Kbps for upload (check the page of your provider because they normally only disclose the speed to download.

The procedure is relatively simple but involves the creation of a free account at Veodia web site:

This is necessary because the web service provides the output to Quicktime, the format adopted by the Second Life for video. With the account created, simply follow the steps in the tutorial presented in Webcam Blog, available at:

Check the test done by the author's step by step in the video below.

Also in the You Tube, we found a second video showing how to transmit video from the webcam; however the author did not have enough upload speed to pass and was frustrated in the final, thinking it was lag unfortunately.
