Dear Wordpress Community,

I need help. I need to figure out a way to allow my audience live stream an online video chat between several of our teachers.

We have teachers all over the USA, and we want them to be able to chat, together, and for our audience to be able to stream that chat live. Right now we are using spreecast, but we want to host the videos on our site. Is this possible?

Google Hangouts On Air is a pretty simple solution. The teachers can join the Hangout and chat there, but you can also broadcast the Hangout to YouTube for others to listen in on. Not sure if it'll fit your needs, but we use Hangouts here at Treehouse pretty much every day.

And as far as WordPress goes, you can embed the Hangout just as easily as you embed a normal YouTube video, so it can be in a page or a post, whatever's best.
