'[OT] Real-time video on internet, how?'

<x-flowed>Hi all,

I want to display a continuous image in REAL-TIME on my homepage. This is
what I plan to do:-
1. use a video camera to aim at the site.
2. capture the image by using a frame grabber in a PC.
3. run a program that will continuously store the image data into a file.
4. ftp the image file continuously to my home page which is hosted in the
ISP's server.
5. by keep updating the files, we should see a continuous image on the
homepage (eventhough the motion may jerk).

This method seems a bit dumb to me, could anyone give me some comments or
suggest a better/more professional method?

Thanks in advance

John

At the risk of furthering their monopoly,  look for Microsoft NetMeeting
and NetShow.

This would require that users have NetMeeting also, but it's a lot easier
and therefore
faster.  All you need then is a video input device, such as a USB camera or
a capture device.

Sounds like a normal web-cam.  There's loads of those type of sites
out there.  It's *bound* to be documented in web design books / tutorial
web sites.
