I have in my hand an NTSC video cable and an XLR with audio. How do
I hook that to the mbone? :-)


Go get yourself an encoder - VBrick, Envivio, Tandberg, etc, etc - there's
plenty out there, take your pick. That'll take video + audio as an input, and
output the encoded video (typically MPEG-2 or H.264 in an MPEG-2 transport
stream) as multicast.

Hook that into your favourite ISP that supports global multicast
(several of the tier-1's do), and you're all done.

Really.  It's that trivial?  Ok.  Cool.  Anyone know if Road Runner's one of 
those?  And how do viewers watch it?
