I used google and searched for how to live stream on your website. There were quite a few results. Basically, unless you have a whole IT department available to build customized live streaming capabilities for your website then your answer is going to be a product.

I believe you could also use twitch or most gaming streams for this aswell. I couldn't find anything on using facebook live.

It not that Hubspot pages support this, it's that web pages in general can. for instance,  Twitch is probably the most popular video game live streaming community. Here is a tutorial show how to embed the live stream and chat onto a third party page using just an iframe:

uStream - https://support.ustream.tv/hc/en-us/articles/207851917-How-to-embed-a-stream-or-video-on-your-site

 

the part that would require server side access (not possible in hubspot) and hours of heavy coding is the app that pulls, encode, decodes, and broadcasts the video in real time. That is the part you want the service for. There are tons of steaming options. 

 

You can get free software called OBS. It is really easy to use. You would need the camera to feed into a computer, then connect the camera to OBS. You then set OBS up to a streaming service. You then embed the video from the streaming service onto your page. You might even be able to just use OBS if you had a way to recieve the video from it on your site. I don't know anything about that though. Another cool thing about OBS is that you can add stacking views, and hide and show these views, so you can use graphics, intro outro vids, and really anything else. Video game streamers put now playing tickrs for your background music, subscription and donation updates, graphics around there game UI's, etc. 

That is just the way I can think of doing. I wouldn't know if it was the best way for what you are wanting. a lot of people have performed social experiements where they live stream a camera in their house onto a website 24 hours a day. I can't imagine them doing it without using serverside code, which you could proxy using a thirdpart server like go daddy, but that seams the cleanest and closest to what you want. For all I know they used something like OBS to do it anyways. 

I guess the take away here is that you need to break this up into it's peices then find a solution for each piece. Hubspot aside this isn't anything that hasn't been done before in some variation. I learned how to stream on twitch by seaching for the software (OBS), tutorials on the software, tutorials on connecting OBS to twitch, tutorials on how to accept donations, show my playlist, etc. I just broke it up into specific questions and the answers were easy to find.

I anticipated using a product/server to "host" the stream. I guess the question is how to I take that feed from the site and get in on a hubspot webpage we built.

That is going to depend on the service/product you choose, but you want to choose a server that either has user tutorials or is built specifically for that as a service.

Our clients are in the construction field, all we need is a feed from 1 camera (surveillance type camera) to a "host" then take it from the host and put it on their hubspot page. I think i'm misunderstanding something here.

 

I get that it depends on where I am getting the feed (what product / host etc). But hubspot built pages support streaming video? I cant seem to find where. Maybe im not using the correct terminology. 

 

I appreciate your input and need more lol, any more help is great if you have more input on this.

Hi 
You can use  StreamingVideoProvider to stream directly from IP (CCTV) camera  to a  web video player that you can embed on your web page, all without the need of any dedicated pc or software.
The video platform connects directly to your RTSP IP camera, pulls the stream, does all the transcoding in the cloud and delivers it to your viewers who can watch it on any device.

There are three main elements to set up Live Streaming Website i,e  broadcasting, live streaming software, and embed live video stream on your site. 

If you don’t have a budget to pay for your own CDN, services like StreamHash provide the full infrastructure to deliver video content to your viewers. They have comparable offers, it depends on the individual requirements.

Of course it is possible. Moreover, today there are a lot of different gadgets, and bloggers make a lot of cool videos, as well as they tell in detail about different devices. I have a drone camera, for personal use. I'm not a blogger, but my travel videos are just as good. It's really cool stuff, you can see the review here https://besttechexpert.guide/best-drone-camera/ and I'm sure this is what you need
