Stream and store webcam video to/on server

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'd like to stream from a webcam to a server and store it there. It has to be done over the web, so no additional software will be used to stream the data to the server (i.e.: no VLC or consorts. I can manage to capture webcam with JQuery).The video has to be stored on the server for later replay. It has to be possible to stream to the server from any computer (via the webcam). The problem is, I'm a complete newby in the field of multimedia and I don't know what kind of server i need to look for. I have an apache server installed here, but I think I read apache can't do that job well, since it's not designed for that purpose.Requirements for the kind of server: it has to be free, stable, and if possible: popular (in the same way MySQL is very popular under databases). Can you give me directions what to look for? Any search terms, technologies which might come in handy with this? Also, any tutorials in regard with any aspect of this (capturing the webcam, streaming the data to server, storing the data on server, and replaying the data from server) will be much appreciated!

Thank you for your reply. I read into this Red5 server, and unfortunately, i didn't find an extensive manual or tutorials. I installed it but have trouble finding a good and extensive tutorial or help file. Besides, the original wiki is somehow down, it seems. I was thinking, can't Apache do the task??

I don't know, I wouldn't call myself a media or Apache expert. But if Apache could do it, would Red5 exist? Maybe a module exists to help facilitate it, but I'm not familiar with anything. I just found Red5 by doing a search after reading your post, I've never used it.
