Excellent replies - Thank you. Starting to get a better understanding here. A few refining questions:
Any recommendations for weather resistant, WiFi, good streaming video quality of (daylight) images approx 200 yds away, less than $300...? I've been reverse-engineering some feeds and keep coming across "Sony Visual Communications Camera" may times, however that cam seems to be outdated. Fixed position is fine.
Of the feeds I've been researching, most use the n/frames method. I wonder if you could upload 5-10 per second for an almost 'live' feel... or am I missing something.
Of course, the live stream is an attractive option - if I can pull it off. Checked out VLC (and Darwin next), but feel they might be beyond my technical abilities. Does there exist an easier "plug & play" service? I saw one feed using US Relay eLiveStream which looked pretty good. Any experience with that provider or maybe another suggestion?
Again, thank you for your help.
