I would like to use, on server A, an USB webcam that is physically plugged on server B.

Is there a way to mount the /dev/video0 of server B on server A (as /dev/video0, or /dev/video1, etc.).

Both servers are running Debian Wheezy and can communicate via local network.

  • For video you should use a streaming server. – user55518 Feb 22 '14 at 19:10

Have a look at the USB/IP project.

    @Braiam This critique doesn't make any sense in this case as the answer is to use a certain software which is mentioned by name. Thus in contrast to the typical case the link does not provide the answer here. The answer is in the text and the link just shows where to find the software or read more about it. – Hauke Laging Feb 22 '14 at 18:11
