Proxy streaming video from webcam

daviddavid Member

I've got a Panasonic network camera, and I'm curious if there's a way I could proxy the streaming video through my web server (using nginx right now).

It's capable of an h264 RTSP stream, or MJPEG (I'm thinking the RTSP stream would work best). It's 640x480, no audio.

I'd like it setup so the stream from my camera is only started if there's at least one viewer, and then if there are multiple viewers, they would be fed from the web server or proxy software, so that it won't hit my camera with more than a single stream.

Also, I'd need a video client (maybe flash player based, or html5?) that I could embed into a web page to view the video.

Is this possible? Any tips on what I'd need to do, or what I should look into?
