Online webcam


Hi there,

I was wondering if there's any way to mount an online webcam system under my Linux box.

I already have installed the webcam (yes, it is up and running, working with PWC driver - it's a logiteck quickam zoom)

Surely there's some kind of linux software to help me putting my webcam online.

What I would like to do:

In any computer with internet, connect to my ip address via Internet Explorer or any other normal browser, then it would ask me a password.

After inserting the password, I would be able to see my webcam online, withtout any need of additional software in the local machine - It would be an internet page showing the online image.

What do you recommend me?

Motion has an http server as well as being a motion detector, as indicated in the link I posted.

I'll check it, but I only wanted the HTTP server, I don't want it to detect motion.


thanks anyway

Some of motion's features include:

* Taking snapshots of movement
* Watch multiple video devices at the same time
* Watch multiple inputs on one capture card at the same time
* Live streaming webcam (using multipart/x-mixed-replace)
* Real time creation of mpeg movies using libraries from ffmpeg
* Take automated snapshots on regular intervals
* Take automated snapshots at irregular intervals using cron
* Execute external commands when detecting movement (and e.g. send SMS or email)
* Motion tracking (camera follow motion - special hardware required)
* Feed events to a MySQL or PostgreSQL database.
* Feed video back to a video4linux loopback for real time viewing
* Lots of user contributed related projects with web interfaces etc.
* User configurable and user defined on screen display.
* Control via browser (older versions used xml-rpc)
* Automatic noise and threshold control
* Motion is a daemon with low CPU consumption and small memory footprint.
