Anyone know a good program \ website to privately stream videos? I have some things I would like to stream, but I only want a select few guildies and other friends to be able to view it. Thus far I've checked out a lot of the big name streaming websites, and most either do not allow private streaming, only allow private streaming in supported games, or only allow limited privacy in streaming.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I don't know the answer, and it sounds kind of dirty.

If it's pre-recorded, I'm relatively sure there are some privacy options in a small service you may have heard of before called YouTube.

YouTube allows you to mark a video private to for up to 50 YouTube users only, meaning they need to log in to view it.

For live streaming, you could use Justin.tv.

You can set an access code on your stream which can be changed whenever you want. Only those with the access code would be able to view the stream.

Naturally in both scenarios, the administrators of the service themselves would always have access. So if you were doing anything illegal such as streaming a copyrighted video, you could be shut down and still face the legal repercussions. I'm assuming whatever you are doing is legal.

I'm not doing anything illegal, I just don't want anyone else to view my stream.
