Can I stream an IP camera (not a USB or standard webcam) live?

Yes, we have a number of broadcasters who stream using an IP camera. It does require a certain level of encoder, though. Off the top of my head, and if you are looking to do this from a software encoder, I know Wirecast supports IP cameras.

So I would recommend using their free trial encoder with our service to see if this will meet your needs before committing to anything:

    This does not work the way you outlined it.Spent 12 hour trying to get an IP cam- with wirecast to stream thru Dacast. I see the video source in Wirecast and used the correct xml file. do you have any information for using IP camera?.
