Hi there. I'm evaluating these products in order to transform regular USB WebCams (creative etc..) into Generic IP-Camera. WebCamXP was not good, will these do the trick better?

1. I ONLY need a application that transforms USB Cam into WebCam. Is "CamLAN" right app for that?
2. I tested CamLAN and activated VideoLAN, Selected WEbCam to produce MJPEG, but what is the URL for that???
* http://ip:port/ ??? ... video.cgi ? or does this use RTSP?
* Default port was 399.
3. I need VLC to be able to watch the feed..

I represent a very large large expanding surveillance company also in nothern europe, So I'd be happy to receive a proper answer that resolves my problem.

Thank you.

Hello,

the easiest way to use a webcam as IP-cam goes through the integrated webserver of CamLAN (CamUniversal, CamPermanent).

- add the webcam to the program as a new camera.
- start the integrated webserver
- request images from the webcam through standard HTTP requests

Sample of such a live cam using the integrated webserver: http://www.crazypixels.com/camuni-cam.htm

I too am evaluating CamLAN to turn webcams to IP Cameras.

I am wondering if the Webserver can send me a MJPEG stream
rather than having to do repeated requests..

This would make it easier to integrate into our existing surveillance software (Xprotect).

TIA
Peter
