How they do it? play/stream video clips instead of live?

I know I can display still images/privacy shades on all my QC Fusion/PRO 5000/PRO 9000...however I have seen some are able to "play/stream" video clips instead of live cam over their Logitech cam and some are even to display customized "running sentences/logos" at the top/bottom of their cams while broadcasting in either live or playing/streaming video clips, how they do it?

I have read all available online/pdf manuals included with my cams and I couldn't find the instructions to do this...can someone please send me the links or tell me how to do it?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Best

Normally, third-party software is required to perform this action.

Thanks KachiWachi, can you please let me know which software/s are able to do this? or what/which "key word" should I use to search from Google?

Best regards.

You could use the free Windows Media Encoder to stream your vids...

And see my tutorial on how it works here...

Windows Media Encoder 9 & Your Logitech Webcam

As for stream overlays which is what your after, it is not mentioned on the tutorial guide above but a "plugins" tab is available for you to add various plugins to enhance WME's functionality ie text scrolling overlays, images etc etc....I wont go into every detail as some on the forum might expect as I trust you can play with the software yourself to learn more how it works :smileywink:

There is also seperate encoder software you can download from camstreams that utilizes the WME engine and is also free. With the camstreams software you can also display overlays such as a date and add an image to your stream....

Get Camstreams Encoder Here

Hope this helps :smileyhappy:
