I want to use my old (1GHz) PC as webcam video stream server (like you can see those road cameras).
I thought of using VLC and already tried using http output but it was not really good. Too cpu hungry, too big stream (kBps), not stable...
I been reading VLC how-to's but thre is still a question.
- Which output should I use? Http, RTSP, UDP? I want to make for more than one computer at the same time (multicast).
- Which codec should be good? PC is not so fast so it shouldn't be too cpu hungry codec. Mpeg2, mpeg4, xvid?
- how much video buffer should I use (vb=?)?
- What about setting IP and ports?
So I need some help with ideas, but if someone can make a
VLC command line it's even better :)
Oh, computer has direct internet connection and own IP.
