I have two computers, a desktop in my office ( with a webcam attached ) and a laptop somewhere else on the network.
Usually I take a look at my office through my webcam by running
ssh Office -Y "mplayer tv://device=/dev/video0"
from my laptop. I don't like Xforwarding mplayer, so why can't I tunnel
/dev/video to my pc by running this on my laptop?
sudo mkfifo /dev/video1 ssh Office 'dd if=/dev/video' | sudo dd of=/dev/video1'
and then to watch the webcam ( on my laptop )
