Personally I would use one of the push type snapshot up-loaders that sends a snapshot to a website every 10 seconds, surely good enough for outside viewing?
Now you just need some birds in the nest!
Yeah something like this would be ideal!
Have you any recommendations?
I'll have you know that we currently have a blue tit and her 5 eggs in there! Not every day you get to sit at work and watch tits come and go!!!

I'm trying to set up the same thing - birdbox vlc stream to Xibo. I'm following the same process as in this thread but I can't seem to get the stream from the the PC (with the USB capture device running VLC) showing in a webpage activeX box. I'm not putting it into xibo yet, just a very simple webpage with html and body tags as well as the object code from this thread.
I can view the capture device and see the output of the camera in vlc, but when setting up the vlc http stream I just get the traffic cone displayed in the client webpage. Any ideas? I've tried it on win7 and XP.
Thanks for your help
Apologies for the delay in a reply, I've been on holiday the past couple of weeks.
I use the following HTML to successfully stream to a web browser on a client PC via http:
For Internet Explorer
<param name="Src" value="http://<IP of HOST>:<CHOSEN PORT>" />
<param name="ShowDisplay" value="True" />
<param name="AutoLoop" value="True" />
<param name="AutoPlay" value="True" />
For Chrome and Firefox
target='http://<HOST IP>:<CHOSEN PORT>'>
You can then incorporate some HTML that detects the user's browser and then executes the relevant embed code.
I'd give this a go. If your stream is all set up correctly then this should stream to the browser using this code. Are you able to access the stream on the client's PC through VLC?
If you can't access the stream at the client at all, ensure the client has the latest version of VLC installed and that local addresses are being bypassed by the your proxy, if you are using one.
Thanks for your help,
That was the problem. I was using the IE code and then trying to view the test page I had made in Firefox. All sorted now.
