How do I show live webcam feed on a page of my site?

I have a camera I need to watch via my site.  How can I do this?

First off, I am assuming you already have a FTP or live feed mechanism set up to continually send your webcam pics to your server.  Having said that, here is a sample HTML block that can get it done:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1"/>
<meta http-equiv="expires" content="0" />
<img border="0" src="camera/camerapic.jpg" width="352" height="288">

The Meta tags set the expiration and refresh rate of the page.  Whatever number you put in the content tag indicates how fast the webcam updates (the current example is 1 second, however most webcams update around 15 - 30 seconds). Note that it is a good idea to make this sychronous with the FTP speed, so users can see full pictures, instead of having then cut out after awhile.

Can you give more details, such as how much progress you have made already? Also, you may want to post this on the Web Development section as whatever language you need to use, I severely doubt it'll be HTML.
