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.
