OpenCaster is a free desktop tool for windows (soon to be available on mac), which allows you to broadcast commonly used media files (mp4,mp4,flv,avi,etc…) from your desktop to your favourite RTMP server, such as Flash media server / Wowza media server / Red5 Media Server. Create playlists with your fav media files and stream them to the internet like a live tv / radio show .
OpenCaster is powered by the open source FFMPEG encoder engine. You need to download the latest FFMPEG binary from the web to your computer system before using this application. The recommended place to get your FFMPEG binary would be – http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ . For more info about OpenCaster and usage visit: http://rtmpworld.com/products/opencaster
This is a freebie from RTMPWorld.com, and is recommended for use on non commercial systems only. This is not a complete noob’s deal. you need to have at-least some idea about streaming to use this application.
