camserv 0.5.1

camserv is a streaming webcam server for Video4Linux with filters.
Camserv is a free program to do streaming video through the web.

Streaming video can be sent to both Netscape and Internet Explorer clients. However, Internet Explorer under Windows cannot apparently handle the multi-part JPEGs, and therefore a special javascript page must be setup. One is included in the distribution as an example.

So far the hauppage TV cards have been tested, so have the black and white quickcams, and the old colour quickcams. For use with the Hauppage TV cards, one doesn't need any camera as they can use the other channels on the card to stream TV or whatever is being inputted.

The camserv program now comes with a relay program which will allow you to offload webservers ... effectively mirroring your webcam! It will also allow you to broadcast your camera even from your masqueraded machines, or server hundreds of people from your meager 28.8!
