How do I stream a webcam to a server from a client laptop?
Posted on 2008-10-07
Basically I need to have my webcam (live) feed sent to a web-server which can then re-broadcast that feed to other users. I'm assuming those other users would just go to an HTTP address and it would be displayed.
I need it to be this way because the internet connection will be relatively poor where my laptop will be - but i will be able to upload it to a web server (have enough up-stream) - and this web server has plenty of bandwidth to re-send the feed.
I need this to be a server-type solution. I can't use a public website which does this for me. Currently I have access to an ubuntu 8 server running apache and windows 2003 server running apache/IIS. The client will be running windows, but I could get a laptop running OS X.
Anyone have any solutions?
