Is Live Video Ready To Be Streamed, Or Does It Need To Be Encoded?



I want to live stream video from a STB over my network. I currently capture from the STB from component into an easycap, and then stream to a local rtmp server on my home server with OBS.


My new STB has HDMI out, and I'd like to use that for better video quality.


From what I've read, the Roxio software can life stream tommy rtmp server, which is fine, but, will the video need to be re-encoded by the PC doing the capturing, or can it just stream the video received from the Roxio over USB?


The capture PC is a Microserver n54l, running a dual core AMD 2.2GHz, so not great for encoding, hence this solution..
