Best way to stream composite video feed (via usb input) across network
Bit of a specific enquiry here, but bear with me, someone might have a suggestion.
In work we have a bird box in one of the trees outside. A few years back someone installed a video camera in it and ran a yellow composite cable from the box, across the path and into the nearest room with a projector. The cable goes directly into the projector and the 'action' can be viewed live on the big screen in there.
However, this isn't enough, apparently! What is now required is to stream the feed throughout the building and make it accessible in our digital signage.
To do this I knew I have to get it onto a computer of sorts, to start with. I got a hold of one of these usb composite devices thingys and can get the video feed up live on the laptop I installed the usb hardware on.
My next task is to find a way to broadcast it on the network. I use xibo for my digital signage. A feature of this allows for the embeddeding of html and, as such, Web streams. I know there is a way to do this using vlc, however, I'm having trouble getting it to pick up the composite device, and the embed code is difficult to get right.
I know its a bit of a long shot, but can anyone suggest a decent way to get my composite feed from the laptop to the Internet?
