I have used angelcam.com. If you know the RTSP url for live video from the nvr/dvr, you can then feed it into angelcam.
When there are no active connections, it doesnt use any bandwidth.
I havr used them for live steaming events for my kids school.
They have free and paided tiers.
Happy new year!
As a novice, I don't understand how multicast isn't supported on the Public Internet?
US Relay or HD Relay may have a solution for managing a large # of clients/viewers at the same time. Ski resorts and other high traffic web cameras use their services.
Rebroadcasting is not cheap. But if you need it, they might have a solution.
How does it work?
elivestream utilizes one of the fastest network farms in the world to deliver ip camera live video feed to large audiences. Our relay network attaches to the remote camera as a single "client" then takes the live video with controls and transforms it into a robust live presentation complete with security, GUI, upgraded video quality, custom intros, management and QoS. The relay system requires low minimum upstream bandwidth therefore protecting local area networks and reducing infrastructure cost and maintenance.

Gentlemen, you have another option: www.camstreamer.com. This is the app that works on AXIS cameras only and turns such camera into an encoder that sends video directly e.g. to YouTube. One-time cost $299 for the app, no monthly recurring fees, YouTube Live for free.
Disclaimer: I work for Hitachi.
Hitachi Visualisation may be an option.
It's designed for Citywide camera aggregation but should fit the required functionality.
You will need to install a Hitachi Gateway (Windows based software, we can provide an optional appliance) at the camera's site. Alternatively, if you have sufficient bandwidth from camera to the internet, the gateway can be hosted in the cloud.
The gateway can connect directly with many brands of VMS or accept an RSTP feed. It encodes and directs the video to a secure cloud point.
The cloud software has named user authentication. The user will see cameras (of which they have access) in a Geospatial display. They simply click on a camera to see the stream.
It logs access which you may use for billing/audit.
The software and cloud services are licensed by the tenant (which in this case would possibly be the school) and amount of cameras on a per annum subscription basis. This includes unlimited named users and access groups e.g. Year 1, Year 2, Admin etc..
I have no relation and I've mentioned them before (even though I've never sold it), but check out OpenEye. Their solution for this is the most interesting I've seen, by far.

Correct me if I am wrong: Is this similar to broadcast network feature like web streaming television or commercially known as pay-for-view streaming?
I'm from Ivideon team and I confirm, that we give ability for our users with tariff plan for business securely share video with unlimited amount of users. Users can watch video in our mobile apps, web inteface, desktop clients.
Also they can publish stream on their website - a lot of companies use it for promotion. You can see some of them here :
Take a look at 3dEYE cloud provides you option to connect your DVRs over ONVIF or in case of Uniview over p2p where you dont need to expose your DVRs over public ip. https://www.3deye.me/news/uniview-3deye
We also give you full admin panel to create and manage security roles for your customers and end-users. There is an option to pay per TB of data used, this can save you a lot in comparison to non flexible license fee.
Option to embed into your portal as widget or branded option available as well.

please have a look at Camstreamer ... we’ve developed plugin (ACAP application) that you can use to stream rtmp video from an Axis camera right to YouTube, Facebook, DaCast, Wowza and many other platforms. That might work for you.
Proud to confess I work for CamStreamer Ltd. company.
