Thread: Computer nerds - need help

    Computer nerds - need help

    I need to purchase a bunch of computers asap. I have never dealt with the ideal specs needed to stream video so thought what better place to ask.

    Objective :


    Camera connected to desktop streams the video the camera is taking in. This video then transmits to a platform that is then viewed by another viewer. From what i understand, the higher the bitrate the lower the video delay will be. However, with a higher bitrate, the processor and memory I think are taxed more.

    What is an ideal rig to broadcast streaming video? Right now I am starting with an i5 or higher , 8 to 16 gigs of ram, fiber optics. Would a specific graphics card help since most base computers have integrated graphics cards that typically suck.

    The goal is to get the least amount of delay possible.

    I was actually thinking about starting with this as the base:


    Dell Inspiron i3847-4616BK Tower Desktop Intel Gen 4 i5-4440/ 8GB/ 1TB/ Windows 8


    I just dont know what is more important for streaming video, Ram, CPU , Video card or all of them. For all i know they could make videos cards specifically for streaming.

    dells are basically great for this sort of thing. are you looking for basic video conferencing or some sort of high end resolution deal?

    Unfortunately I have no personal experience that could help pick out optimal gear for HD broadcasting... I'd hollar at a Dell sales rep and endeavor to vet what they suggest with a third party. I would, however, avoid any current gen video gear because previous generation should be more than suitable and run at around 30% the cost of the latest greatest.

    Ronco. Steeper learning curve than I anticipated to be honest.

    I'm running so well my limits are cut. Regardless if this wins I'll donate $50 to a freeroll in your honor...looks like a very good spot.

    GPU (Video Card) is used to create and display video. It is not used to capture and encode video.

    You just need a good processor and a decent amount of RAM.

    I think the i5 8GB/16GB would be more than enough.

    The only other consideration is if this going to be going for long periods of time you might want a second fan or better cooling source.

    Also ship the live girls streaming videos straight to PFA...thanks!

    This is exactly what I was looking for... I wasnt sure if streaming was more taxing on the CPU , Ram or Video card. It makes sense it would be CPU heavy. tytyty


    So I am guessing any 500 usd machine with an i5 and 8-16 gigs would handle it just fine.

    Correct except if you are going to run them 8+ hours a day you will burn up those consumer grade processors and ram in no time.
