[FFmpeg-user] Live streaming

 I was wondering if I could get some advice.
I have a hd camera that I want to use as a live feed.
The camera is connected via hdmi to a black magic intensity card.
The camera produces a 1080i stream at 50fps.
 I would like to stream the video, so it's viewable in a browser.  And
ideally at 1920x1080 size but I can live with 20-25fps.
What are my options for best doing this? I see people mentioning using
segmenters and Streaming over http . But can you do that with a live stream
or does it work best with a recorded stream.
Could I use webm or mpeg-dash?
I have had a look at the docs on the ffmpeg website but I think I am just
overwhelmed by all the options available.
Any help would be appreciated
