I have a very old video capture device (Dazzle DVC USB) hooked up to Windows7, and it works with the program that it came with just fine to create a MPEG2 file in a directory.
However, I want to stream what I am recording instead of saving it to a file. The best solution I can think of is playing the video file with VLC or some other program, then capturing the output with Procaster (from Livestream.com). Thus, I want to read a video file as it is being written, and Windows doesn't like that at all. Is there any way to bypass the warnings and read the file anyway? I don't need to do anything fancy like seeking, so is this possible/safe?
Otherwise, other methods that let me stream the feed while it is live that would work with my device, the Dazzle DVC (Digital Video Recorder). I can provide as much information about the device as a person might need.
