Here is my plan for webcasting and recording the Boston Regional. Click for image showing plan (http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=6337&d=1203791604). Note, we've switched from usteam.tv to a NASA feed.

Video feed gets split, runs to two laptops.

One laptop runs Windows Media Encoder pushing a webcast to NASA.

One laptop runs a video recording application, recording each match one by one and renaming them afterwards.

My main question is: What (Windows) application should I record the video in? I'd like to record to h.264 mp4s, but I am not sure the best app to do that in. Virtual Dub and VLC are options, but what has everyone else been using?

I've used Virtual Dub with good results but its been a few years, so there might be something better.

This is a great setup,
Can you post the specific hardware parts you are using to capture video (i.e. video splitter , video to usb converter) ?

Do you have an automated script to upload the videos, or does that happen manually?
