(I'm looking at you Mike now :))) Glad it works for you. I doubt it was me you saw though, I was off on Friday.

I have noticed that the Linux version of Netscape does not seem to continue receiving the video stream for the 5 mins it should, sometimes it only seems to rx it for a min or so, then I have to hit reload? However win95 and NT versions seem to cope ok with this and usually receive the full 5 mins before having to hit reload? Anyway if you find the image all black, we have the lights out. Times are about 0830 to 1730 GMT wekdays only. > I was able to save the video stream into a file, but don't know, > what extention should be given to it, so netscape could play it back.

I've heard rumors that some people put web cams in day cares. Is this true ?

Using an 'Expires' header is the only sure-fire way I've found. Reference a cgi wrapper from your html, e.g. <img src="wrap.cgi"> and wrap.cgi would look like: #!/bin/sh echo "Expires: Friday, 30-Sep-94 12:00:00 GMT" echo "Content-type: image/jpeg" echo cat cam.jpg That should solve your problems.

The applet is probably the easiest way to go. I'm running two cam on my site both are displayed via a simple ready compiled applet. Dunc http://webcam.fim.com.au
Q: What are some other ways to stream digital video media from a URL in a browser?
A: There are 3rd party plugins and (Windows) ActiveX controls that support digital video streaming from a URL. For example, you can use Apple's QuickTime 4 plugin or the RealVideo player, etc. embedded in your HTML page, outside of and instead of playing the video in an embedded Shockwave 7 movie.

VirtualDub is a video capture/processing utility for 32-bit Windows platforms (98/NT/2000/XP), licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video. It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters. VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP images.

Note. Some user agents support the use of META to refresh the current page after a specified number of seconds, with the option of replacing it by a different URI. Authors should not use this technique to forward users to different pages, as this makes the page inaccessible to some users. Instead, automatic page forwarding should be done using server-side redirects.http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/global.html#h-7.4.4
