Instructables
Broadcasting your life over the internet, AKA lifecasting*, for everyone to see might sound creepy but for some people it is fun and entertaining. With the proper equipment you can be streaming live over the internet in no time. Its almost like having your own television show!

*Not to be confused with casting body parts (http://www.instructables.com/id/Lifecasting---hands/)

For this instructable I will show you how to use Justin.tv to broadcast live. There are other sites but i found this one to be the easiest to use.

This is my first Instructable. I found it to be an appropriate Instructable because when I wanted to start broadcasting, I had no idea where to start.

***If your under the age of 16 ask your parents before broadcasting yourself over the internet.***

Step 1: Get the proper equipment

Picture of Get the proper equipment
All you need to broadcast over the internet:

1) A moderately fast internet connection. DSL works, dial up will work but it will be incredibly choppy and bad quality/

2) A webcam. Mines built into the top of my laptop. Can be found for cheep (about 15-20 bucks) at Walmart.

3) A Justin.tv account! (See following steps :P)

4) Microphone optional but nice to have! Many webcams have microphones built in these days.

awsome idea but why do u make rude comments on other peoples instructable......just wondeerin but cool instructable:)
first off, i reckon this was a really well written instructable. easy to follow, and relevant, useful images. but if I may make a suggestion: If people are under the age of 16, I think it's worth asking their parents first, or at least informing them that they want to try it out.
