I need a little help: I'd like to view via internet the output of a
webcam in real time (I mean movie, not still images).
I'd like to know if there's a webcam that can be connected directly to
my local netword without the need of a PC (for the encoding process).
The ideal situation would be the following:
-the local network is connected to internet with a public IP address x.x.x.x
-the webcam is connected to the local network with a private IP address
-I set the firewall/router so that, for example, the requests coming fro
internet at the port 8080 will be redirected to the IP address y.y.y.y
-result: using Windows Media Player via internet, I can see the webcam
output at the IP address x.x.x.x:8080
Is it possible to do this?
Are there some webcam that have an output format which is viewable in
Windows Media Player without having to install codecs?
Re: Webcam on internet
now, it just sits there on the desk with its little green LED glowing
away..............mmm can I do anything usefull with it.
Had it for ages and only just plugged it back in as my son wanted to use it
with MS Messenger worked a treat first time but now he does not bother.
Is there a way of using this or any other PC Cam to view live via a web
I.E. If I set up a Web Page people viewing it can click a link to see live
images over the Web Cam.
What about sound?
Could use it to set up a Cable 10 TV Show and stream live video over the
Just a thought Maybe
