for video format resolution. Encoding module is configured according to mentioned
information. Virtual stream is identified by alias and can be pointed as disabled.
Configuration file represents as plain text file in XML format as can be created
manually or with special application from WebVideoStreamer package.
When executed main service initializes all active virtual streams to be ready for
immediate broadcasting.
Main service could be logically separated to next modules:
• Capture module — it deals with hardware devices;
• Encoder module — it encodes streams in AdobeTM Flash format;
• Webserver — it promotes broadcasting to the net;
• Control module — customizes and controls over the streams.
Every network broadcasting request indicates type of the translation (live video or
static content) and contains all necessary parameters to start http streaming.
