I made a Justin.tv account and want to use my canon HG10 to do live videos. Is this possible? It doesn't detect it with the usb->mini usb while it's in record mode, and the lens closes in the playback mode... so.... I'm stuck.
Maybe I misunderstand your question and purpose, but if all you want is a video & audio signal out on one of the cable output- hdmi, component, dv, hdv, svideo or video, the Sony's and I know the Canon HV20 outputs some (no concurrent digital & analog, one OR the other), just turn the camera ON, not on PLAY, not on REC, just ON. Maybe the HG is different, but we use Sony dv and the Canon HV20 Component every week, just as cameras, the DVD Recorder does the recording, not the camcorder.
I think the question was about a "Live" mode, like what you get from a DV and HDV camcorder.
AVCHD camcorder don't support that at all.
But, with the use of an analog or digital capture board, you could get a similar result using the A/V outputs of the camcorder. There are now capture cards that lets you capture from HDMI (like the BlackMagic Intensity: http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/intensity/ ), thus bypassing all encoding artifacts.
But other than that, you're more or less out of luck using any AVCHD camcorder.
Assuming the camera outputs live HD video using the HD adapter cable, you simply need an HDMI PCI-E feeder card like the ones made by the company referenced in the post above and a program that can handle the video feed in addition to the appropriate configuration of software and Internet connection for streaming.
