    The problem with GnomeMeeting is that it is a VoiP application.

    What I love about WebcamXP is that it is a program designed especially for streaming live video via a webcam over the internet.

    I have been searching for ages to try to find a linux based equivilent... I would even pay at this point.



    Basically, I'm looking to use this as a security device.

    While at work, I want the ability to bring up my website click on a link and have the cam just streaming live video (no pictures and refreshes)



    I was going to give Wine a shot tonight, but was wondering if anyone has tried it out.

    Streaming video

    Hi Blaster,

    You can try to take a look at VLC (http://www.videolan.org)
