Video transmission

I like to transmit a video over the internet and view it with a web-browser. I could set up a video server, but the machine where the video is recorded is in a local net (192.168.xxx.xxx)!  That means that I am not able to connect direct to the server.
One possibility is to upload snapshots to a www-server and view them with a refreshing html-code.
Has anyone a better idea???

Well you could make an animated gif, or you could load a bunch of jpg's into memory and cycle through them using javascript.  Both of these solutions will work ok, but they will be slower and not as smooth as video.  You could always embed a .mov in the html and then at least they get the movie quality in less time.  But streaming video is always best if possible.  Maybe you could get hooked up with a free service somewhere were they will allow you to post your streaming video?
If not that, I can help you with any of the other three possibilities, whichever you prefer.

I'm sorry for the late answer, but I was on holiday :-)

Do you know a program which accepts an incoming video-stream and provides it?
If there is such one I can install it on a seperate server which can be contacted from both sides (video-source and video-viewer).

Well, I'm not very experienced at all in streaming video,  but I am pretty well versed in it's alternatives.  So I can help with those.

If you're looking for software that does this, I think that Real Audio supplies free software to run on your server that will support up to a limited number of simultaneous connections.  Real Audio is of course primarily used for audio, but it also supports video and would therefor be streaming video.  It just takes a plugin for the browser to run it which is free of course.  I'm not sure if this is ata ll answering your recent question, since I don't know much about video streams, but it's my attempt :)

If you are able to modify a server to allow these streaming, and don't want to use real audio, then you should reject my answer and ask for another expert who is versed in these matters.  Otherwise, I can help with the alternatives (or if the real audio mentioned already helped?)

Good luck!
