BroadCam Video Streaming Server

What is BroadCam Video Streaming Server?

BroadCam Streaming Video Server runs on any PC as a server to stream live or pre-recorded video over the internet. BroadCam lets you stream as Windows Media, Flash or JPEG encoding for broadband or dial-up connections. BroadCam is for broadcasting from camera devices or from video recordings only.


The most common release is 2.26, with over 66% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named broadcam.exe. The setup package generally installs about 18 files and is usually about 3.48 MB (3,653,631 bytes).
