David from Burbank, CA

David has been asked if he can help do live streaming. Does he need Wi-Fi for that? Leo says not really, but he does need a cable long enough to go from where he's filming to a computer in order to stream it. If he uses multiple cameras, then he'll need a switcher to control them. It's always best to start with one camera and then expand as he needs to.

Video capture software to do the streaming depends on where he wants to stream. Facebook and YouTube both offer streaming for free. They also offer software to download.

Scott from Orange County, CA

Scott wants to get into internet TV. Leo says he's been doing it for ten years, and it's still not as widespread. But it's gaining in popularity. In fact, most TVs sold are smart TVs that are connected to the internet and allow users to stream services like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu. That's IPTV as well. He's heard about the TriCaster and knows that Leo uses one. With an IP camera, does it really make it more like CNN? Leo says it does. But it's dependent on bandwidth. Leo's audience is as big as it was in the days of Tech TV now.
