Hi all,

I have been trying to do live streaming of events through u stream. Initially I was using the webcams provided on the laptop itself. Lately I found out that my old sony dcr trv33 does usb streaming and hence is a much better choice.

Doing a bit of googling, and I find that doing live streaming through firewire port is even better. But there are some conflicting reports regarding whether the pc (windows xp since windows 7 doesnt seem to support any of these old cameras for usb streaming) does detect the camera on firewire. I am looking at solution where I can do HD live streaming.

1. Is my existing camera good enough for it ?
2. What is the resolution is it outputting to ustream?
3. Is there a better free alternative to u stream or something which doesnt charge high ?

Thanks !
