Hello, all

I'm working on a "simple" robotics project with a WWW browser-based (perl
scripts, etc.) control system.  I want to be able to transmit video from
this robot to the user over the Internet. The video will be coming to the
server over a wireless

I think I've got everything else worked out but the video transmission part.

At the server end, I need to figure out how to get the video signal into the
server (video capture card? USB?) and to send it (black and white,
320x400px, efficient/high compression so dial-up users can use it) without
any buffering, disregarding dropped frames, for as-close-to-real-time
transmission as is possible over the Internet.

At the client end, I would like to have just a video window in a browser
frame with no controls. Just video. I guess for compatibility I should use a
format that Windows Media Player can read... whatever I can get to work, I

Is there a simple real-time video server in Linux that might meet these
needs? Would I be better off looking at a stand-alone video server solution?

Any info on experiences with real-time Internet video transmission would be
greatly appreciated!

Thanks! Happy holidays.
