Chapter 5. Using QuickTime > Authoring a Live QuickTime Stream

Authoring a Live QuickTime Stream

NOTE

The new Macintosh version of Sorenson Broadcaster (v2.0) with QT 5 and Macintosh OS X 10.0 support was not available at the time of this writing. The people who manufacture Sorenson Broadcaster say that the v2.0 user interface will look a little different, and there will be some new features. The Windows tutorial in the next Step-by-Step should help with the authoring process of the new Macintosh version (aside from the inherent differences of the disparate operating systems).

Macintosh OS 9 users can author a live QuickTime stream with Sorenson Broadcaster v1.1 ($199.00), however it requires the out of date QuickTime 4. Other third-party software offering mixed results are CoolStream at www.evological.com and Channel Storm Live Channel at www.channelstorm.com.


In this section, you’ll create a live QuickTime stream on your authoring computer. That is, source audio enters your computer uncompressed and exits as an encoded live stream. The QuickTime streaming server then forwards the live stream, in turn, to your listeners on the Internet. Make sure your audio source is plugged into your computer’s audio input. Use the same audio input level guidelines you used to create a digital file (see Chapter 2).
