This software was designed for 1 to many video streaming so there are 3 different interfaces:
1. Live Broadcast (for publisher)
2. Live Video Watch (for active viewers, discuss online)
3. Live Video Streaming (for passive viewers, simple live video)
Joomla integration for this video streaming software is based on a joomla component and a joomla module.
The joomla module lists active broadcaster channels & show names and a link to broadcast. If user is not logged a clickable message is shown to return to the website and login.
The component is developed using MVC (model view controller) for Joomla and same extensions work on Joomla 1.5.x - 2.5.x and another on 3.x
We are developing this for all of you that want to build sites with features like on justin tv, ustream tv, mogulus, stickam, blog tv or their clones and just need the right plugin to provide this video broadcasting functionality.
All PHP integration source code is provided under GPL.
Full details about the integration component and installation here:
This advanced software requires 2 types of hosting: a regular php&mysql web hosting plan for the regular website features (you probably have that if you have joomla installed) and a special plan (usually on a different special server) for video streaming and other instant communication required between chat clients.
You need 1 of these to run the interactive and streaming part of the software: Red5, Wowza or Adobe Flash Media Server. See the software requirements page on our site for more details. Red5 is free and open source but you need a VPS or Dedicated Server with root access to install it.
If you're not into these technical details you can also find this type of hosting with management services on our site or from other providers.
Red5 is an open source solution so i installed it on my server to found that is a good streaming server with a lot of application that run "out of box".
With the free version for joomla of these product, the test MUST be done.
It's very simply to instal, few option for configurate (realy just one preferences setting) and one module for display the application.
Red5 configuration also is simple.
The graphic style is poor but customizable (but editing php code) and an interface for setting the player color or for use an external player is a need for not expert joomla user.
Waiting for the next step, i thing that is one of the few "live broadcasting" component for joomla at moment.
