  1. Thanks about help a lot.
    How do I stream live from a webcam to internet using vlc? And what format (FLV, MP4) is more compatible with most devices?

      When you connect your video cam to linux, and if your linux has video4linux driver (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video4Linux). The driver will create /dev/video0 file, which is the device file to read raw data from your video cam. As you can see in my command above, it read /dev/video0.

      For web base. Apple said iOS will only support HLS in mobile safari, they want to nuke adobe.

      For app, I tried video kit (http://iosvideokit.com), it play well with rtmp.

      For my comment, if you want low latency, choose RTMP.
