Hi,

I have decided to help this wonderful project of a school for poor girls in Thailand at indiegogo.

One of the things I would like to organise is a live fund raising event streamed over the internet for potential donors.

So: How do I live stream a video fundraising event over the internet to 100+ people for free?

I would really appreciate your help.
Regards, Brahman

Usually, a good way is to simply approach a company that offers a streaming service and ask for their help. A single event, ~100 people viewing.. it's chump change compared to some good publicity about helping a charity like that.

Mind you, you will still need a webmaster and other infrastructure to actually make a technical platform your event is based of off. Think of things like: donating online, somewhat professional looking video-editing, a big enough (and stable) pipe of internet connectivity capable of supporting your video stream, etc.

I have been doing some research of my own now, and it seems that Banckle.com could do what I want and they have a free 14 day trial too.

Does anyone have experience with Banckle (in particular for video streaming from my webcam)?

Found another one that may fit the bill:

I found this discussion bit late, but actually we've just launched a service that allows for creating a live streamed events for free, - events can be free or paid (if you want to donate all earnings). It works with all major ovp platforms, including livestream and youtube. You can create a beautiful pre-booking page, you will see all stats on the attendance, traffic, prebooking number and so on.

Here's the link to the landing page of the product - feel free to check it out: http://cleeng.com/live
