What camcorders and operating system do I need to live stream to a usb port?

Hello,

I want to use a camcorder to live stream video to a usb port for the purpose of streaming it to a webinar platform.

 

Here is what the webinar product manager tells me:

 

We support any camera or video device that is recognized by the Adobe Flash browser plugin.  Generally speaking, on Windows those are any camera or capture card that ships with a WDM driver.  The rule of thumb is that Flash Player supports any camera that is compatible with Quick Time on Mac and WDM (Windows Driver Model) on Windows.

 

The only other requirement is that the camera attach to the computer via a USB port.

 

 

I am hoping that there are camcorders that can help me accomplish this purpose.

 

I found this on the SONY site - not sure that it is relevant to my question.

  I would appreciate if you have any recommendations that will help me accomplish this purpose.  And thanks ahead of time for your attention to this question.
