I want to create a live stream from a satellite receiver. The output available is RCA audio/video. How can I use it and connect to PC so that I can stream? Any specific hardware for Linux?

1 Answer 1

if your videocar has an video-in connection you may use that, else try to buy an converter/adapter.

What you can do also, if you have the money, buy an sattelite reciever which has usb support or dvi/vga/hdmi, these can be linked to the pc if you have the correct hardware.

I think an usb sattelite reciever would be your best bet.

I noticed it's RCA, I think this would be your all-in-one solution:

There are (I think) no linux drivers but you could use a windows emulator or some wrapper for the DLL's.

(Windows Emulator would be you easiest option as the software will run on it too)
