Hello,

I have a LAMP server and my client asked if they could use a webcam to stream an event live on their website.

I said yes and thought it would be easy... turns out not to be the case.

Can someone please let me know how I can make my LAMP dedicated server handle their webcam and post the feed live on the website.

I know it is a broad question and have found it is a little complicated but I appreciate any help.

I do not want to use a paid service, I would rather build it so they could use it over and over.

I was thinking there was a flash flv file I could upload to a folder and connect the camera to it then include another flv file on another page and it would show what was connected.

This is not really an answer, but maybe if you contact the operators of this, you will find some advice and guidance.
