In our case, the capturing does happen in a web browser. We currently use a Flash applet embedded in a larger JavaScript based page to do the streaming. Not requiring the end users (either broadcasting or receiving) to install any software is hugely important, and why we're using Flash now.

All of these can serve video that the <video> element can receive. I believe most of these will now support VP8 streaming and also recording for later viewing.
