The goal of this project is to utilize the beagleboard as a low cost platform for webcam video feeds.
Server capability:

  • Broadcast webcam feeds for directly connected USB webcams
  • Relay webcam feeds from other servers, typically connected over wi-fi
  • Decimate MJPEG streams to match bandwidth limits
  • Monitor and control streams via HTTP
  • Advertise HTTP services locally via Zeroconf

The beagleboard will require a functional Linux gspca driver for all USB webcams in use as well as USB wi-fi for remote service. Linux Zeroconf service must also be included.
