    Existing bird box cam. How to rig up?

    We have an existing bird box cam in a bird box that has been untouched for years.

    I want to get this running and perhaps have a livestream both internally and perhaps on the website.

    The end of the cable leading out has a yellow composite video plug (male) and a (female) power adapter which I assume takes 12v, same as our CCTV.

    Obviously I can't get into the birdbox as there are little birdies in there!

    Can anyone recommend me a bit of kit that can capture the video and stream it?

    Funnily enough, the room the kit ran back to at the time (Was a store room) is now the server room! So yes to both!

    Cheers James, bookmarked that. I think £80 is a bit steep though for a bird box. Im looking for something I can plug into a PC then perhaps use something like iSpy to stream?
