Anyone know what may be going on?  I put a youtube link and it plays perfectly.  I put in a stream feed for our live broadcast and it says it's missing a plug-in.

Our internal web browser doesn’t support h.264 videos. Do you know what source you are using on your live stream site?

I think it is H.264.  What I’m trying to do is automate a live broadcast in a remote location.  We use to just put a web browser on the screen and although that works, it doesn’t let us automate pre service announcements, warmup, and starting the broadcast.  Are there any work around?

I see. There might be. What’s the actual streaming provider you use? It appears you are using church online for your live site, but what source are you using for the video?

We use

 and the encoder is wirecast.

Specifically: The Code for the Stream for Church Online Platform is:

<!-- note this code must be above the iframe code -->
<STYLE TYPE-"type/css">
.embed-container {
position: relative;
padding-bottom: 56.25%; /* 16/9 ratio */
padding-top: 30px; /* IE6 workaround*/
height: 0;
overflow: hidden;
max-width: 928px; /* NOTE: CHANGE THIS TO UPDATE THE MAX WIDTH */
margin: 0 auto;
}

.embed-container iframe,
.embed-container object,
.embed-container embed {
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
max-height: 522px; /* NOTE: CHANGE THIS TO UPDATE THE MAX HEIGHT */
}
</STYLE>

<div class="embed-container">
<iframe frameborder="0" src="http://www.yourstreamlive.com/embed/iframe/live/1319?show_powered_by=no&autostart=true&show_live_event_schedule_link=no&show_live_viewer_count=no&responsive=yes&height=928&aspect_ratio=16:9" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen allowtransparency="yes" name="live" id="live"></iframe>
</div>

There's also a URL that we can use, but I think this URL uses H.264.

Unfortunately, it is indeed an HLS stream which is using h.264, so our browser can't play it. (Due to the codec being proprietary).

The reason a regular YouTube video works is they offer multiple formats for each video (including WebM, which is free), however, if you were to stream to YouTube Live instead you would run into the same issue as with churchStreaming.tv as their streams are still h.264

When my church was doing this, we recorded our Saturday service and then just added the video to Proclaim. It wasn't live, but we made sure not to say dates or 'morning' or 'tonight' or anything that would give away what day we recorded it.

I think your best bet would be to use Proclaim for the Pre-service and then have a blank slide for where you want the stream. If your Mac has 'Displays have separate spaces' enabled you could have a fullscreen browser open on your output display. Then with one swipe on the trackpad or using the keyboard shortcut ctrl+arrow, you could quickly switch between the Proclaim OnAir window and the fullscreen browser which has your live stream ready.

Thank you, Jordan.

Are you aware of any plans of Proclaim accepting an HDMI or Live feed in the future?

We have talked about accepting live video feed like from a camera. Could you eleborate a little more about what you mean?

Well, there would be two applications for us that we use with ProPresenter.  First, the ability to teleconference our congregation via SKYPE to missionaries overseas.  Via an app called CamTwist, we can make a part of a screen a video output and be recognized by the computer of a camera output.  So, we can tap into this cam twist in ProP and can show the missionaries on screen.

We use the first application more than this other one.  To take an SDI or HDMI source and put it up on the screen by making it a part of the presentation in ProP.  

Thanks
