Windows – Simple Webcam Streaming Software


I'm looking for some really simple software to broadcast video from a webcam.

PC is running Vista, web cam is a standard MS one.

All I'd like to be able to do is access the output from the camera in a web-browser. I can take care of all the networking, so just need the software.

Anybody have good experience here?

Not used it myself but I think VLC can do this.

About VLC

VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player supporting most audio and video formats (H.264, Ogg, DivX, MKV, TS, MPEG-2, mp3, MPEG-4, aac, ...) from files, physical media (DVDs, VCD, Audio-CD), TV capture cards and many network streaming protocols.

It can also convert media files, transcode and act as a streaming server over unicast or multicast and IPv4 or IPv6. It doesn't need any external codec, program or codec pack to work.
