Hi,

I am trying to stream my web cam with Flash Media serer and I am having some problems getting it to work.

First of all I have this code in a swf on the web that shows my own web cam in real time.

client_nc = new NetConnection();
client_nc.connect("rtmp://rtmphost.com/testStream/main.asc");

mycam = Camera.get();
mycam.setMode(160,120,15);
mycam.setQuality(20000,0);
my_video.attachVideo(mycam);

output = new NetStream(client_nc);
output.attachVideo(mycam);
output.publish("livevideofile", "live");

in_ns = new NetStream(client_nc);
in_ns.receiveVideo();
in_ns.play("livevideofile");
Replay_video.attachVideo(in_ns);
stop();

The above code works fine but I do not understand how I am supposed to send this siganal to the flash media server and then view it from another computer. I may allreeady be sending the singnal tio the server but how do I view it from another swf?

Thanks,

waffe

Even some good links to tutorials would probably do the trick...

other swf need only following code to playback reatime video:

---------------------------------------
client_nc = new NetConnection();
client_nc.connect("rtmp://rtmphost.com/testStream/main.asc");

in_ns = new NetStream(client_nc);
in_ns.receiveVideo();
in_ns.play("livevideofile");
Replay_video.attachVideo(in_ns);
stop();

ok great - but I don't see anything yet. Do I need a video playback component on the stage?
