    Streaming Webcam on network

    Hi Guys

    We have recently had a Bird box installed in our school gardens and we would like this to be viewed internally across the school network

    Can anyone recommend the best easy solution for this?

    I have setup a windows xp P4 machine which will take the video and sound input via USB and I am wondering how i can get this to be shared across the school network!

    I tried VLC with no luck unless i was doing something wrong!

    Has anyone used something else which is simple?

    You can use Ustream.tv and this will put it into a web interface. There is a way to block all other webcam streams but your own, off the top of my head i am unsure how. You can also use it to sream on the internet.

    Off the top of my head thats all i can think of.

    We cheated and got a IP camera! I think Yawcam allows you to stream webcam output.

    install yawcam. enable the streaming feature. navigate to http:// computername:8080 this is usually the port number but you can configure this in the settings.

    Ive used it here to show some building work that's happening.

    I use VLC in Linux, works perfectly. If you are using it in Windows, make sure your firewall software isn't blocking it.

    YAWCAM worked a treat. Is it possible to picture in colour?

    thats not a fault with yawcam. there is a settings menu where you can adjust the image from your webcam. have a look in there.

    Is it because it's dark inside the bird box and it's changed over to NV-mode?

    I don't think it has gone under NV-Mode. The video decoder is set to PAL_B, would this make the difference?
