I have server on Debian 6, without Desktop Environment and I have simple web camera. Web camera is defined like /dev/video0, so I can use cat /dev/video0 > ~/photo to get image from it (of course this is not correct way :))

I want to capture, convert and broadcast video stream by HTTP, or can I make common IP web cam?


I figured out how to do this using motion


You can do this with VLC; it has packages available for most distros, including Debian.
