Streaming Live Video using Webcam


I am currently working on a project that will stream live video from a robot over a wireless medium. We have a wireless G connection. I am using the Spca5xx Webcam driver. I am interested in finding out the best way to go about compressing the video coming off the camera so that it can be sent over the wireless connection using UDP. I currently have a Java applet running on the webserver on the robot that can view the camera. We are using the Gentoo Linux Distribution. If you need more information, just ask.

Thanks

Mpeg-4

It looks to me like it can only stream a precompressed file. I do not have my wecam video compressed to MPEG-4. I am wanting to stream live video, how can I go about doing this if the video is not already compressed on the fly with MPEG-4?

Any help is appreciated.

i'm not tooo familiar with vlc, nor streaming, but when i ran the wizard i got a screen where it offered 'raw' for encapulation... i think this was for input..and output.

so you may want to investigate this prog a little more.. it is highly established and therefore very stable.

good luck, keep us abreast..
