Default Like a porn star...

...ha ha...made you look...

Well, kind of actually. I need to set up a very basic, simple web page for a project that can stream a live video feed. It has to be password protected, too. (See? Like a porn star! lol) I need people to be able to go to the page in their browser, type in the password and watch what I'm streaming. This will be on a closed network so Stickam-ish sites are a no go (unfortunately).

What would be the best way to do this? I'm not real sure what the best way to go about doing this is so ANY ideas would be very welcome.

--<EDIT>--

Did find some interesting code to use:

<OBJECT ID="MediaPlayer" WIDTH="192" HEIGHT="190" CLASSID="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"
STANDBY="Loading Windows Media Player components..." TYPE="application/x-oleobject">
<PARAM NAME="FileName" VALUE="videofilename.wmv">
<PARAM name="ShowControls" VALUE="true">
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="false">
<PARAM name="ShowDisplay" VALUE="false">
<PARAM name="autostart" VALUE="false">
<EMBED TYPE="application/x-mplayer2" SRC="videofilename.wmv" NAME="MediaPlayer"
WIDTH="192" HEIGHT="190" ShowControls="1" ShowStatusBar="0" ShowDisplay="0" autostart="0"> </EMBED>
</OBJECT>

Build a very simple site around that. That might work. I just need to mess with it some as far as how to use the feed that I have. Not sure how that's going to work yet. I also need to find a way to password protect access to it.

Ideas?

Would probably be better off in the Hosting Section instead of the Networking section....

Would you need multiple accounts, or would 1 suffice?

@BK 123 - lol...sorry. That was kind of my goal, sort of...wanted to get people to look at the post so I could get as many replies possible as fast as possible. Time is VERY of the essense.

@jmacavali - I was torn between this forum and the one you mentioned. I thought it would be appropriate in either. If a mod wants to move it, no big deal.

@j03 - No. One account would be fine. I will make sure the individuals that need access to it get the proper log on info.

Also...we got our video feed today. It's coax running from the cameras to a Jupiter video server (http://www.jupiter.com/category.php?id=8) and, from there to a computer monitor. That code I found yesterday would work perfectly if I were trying to do this with a source file but this is live. It doesn't create a file...it's kind of like a tv in a way. Is there a way to embed an image of my desktop in a pw protected webpage? That would work. Or is there code that can grab the video coming off that video card as a source? Maybe some software that can do it?

Any additional help GREATLY appreciated. You guys rock. Thanks a million.

Would something like this suffice?

http://webcamserver.sourceforge.net/

It's designed for webcams but uses v4l so anything coming over that should work ok. Only thing is I'm not sure whether passwords are enabled... if not, it works via a java applet so it should be relatively simple to just embed the java applet in an apache instance that is password protected (though bear in mind someone who knows the location of the applet could theoretically still grab it - so it's not watertight.)
