connecting video security feed to website

client would like me to put their security video feed from two separate building locations on a password protected page on their site. They want to be able to view the streaming video on the road from their phone and tablet.

1.  Is that possible?
2.  Is that a good idea?
3.  Where do i start figuring out what I need?  He said they have two different vendors for each location.

"How in the world would a port on a dvr allow me to connect the recordings to their website"
I misunderstood, i thought you were trying to access the live feeds.

You can setup access (internal & external) to the built in interface of the DVR with browsers.   Also you could use a mobile app for access. I have live access and access to recordings via my iphone from anywhere.    The access includes 16 cameras at 1 location, 5 at another and 4 in another location, all this from 1 app.   It works very well.    The video streams great but is dependent on good internet conections.    

"Unless the DVR can connect to a router (i.e. has it's own internal server) it's not going to be possible"
I've connected many security DVRs to routers.  All the DVRs i've worked with have NICs, i've never even run across one that didn't, but i've never really looked.

What kind of cameras are you talking about?    
Are the cameras connected to a computer or a DVR or simply IP cameras on a network?

Also check to see if the service they're using to record the video has a web API.

Also get the DVR make and model.     Many DVRs have a particular port that can be used by a webpage to access a feed.

How in the world would a port on a dvr allow me to connect the recordings to their website.  Unless you think we have a server on site.  We do not.  We have a shared host.

Probably, I was more talking about how are they going to connect to a router to upload.
Guess Unless you think we have a server on site maybe threw me off.
