Projects / camserv


Camserv is an extremely modular program for streaming video from your Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and BSDi machine to Web clients. Filters can be added for text on the displayed window and for anything else one wants to add. It's also very portable because of the modularity of the camera plugin modules, and includes a relay agent which allows the stream to be run more easily on low-bandwidth connections, masqueraded machines, and less-powerful machines. The relay agent can be connected to another relay agent for endless mirroring and paths.

            This is a nice little application, which allows you to use any bttv supported board/camera. It compiled "out of the box" for me on RH 6.0, with a homegrown 2.2.14 kernel. I updated my bttv to the latest (0.6.4h), and replaced the header files that came with the kernel, with bttv's.

            Another nice feature, is that the "cleient" is any web browser. You may also add custom graphics to spruce up your web-cam.
