Welcome to the worlds clunkiest chatroom!

So... I've spent the weekend trying to work out how to get a Ethernet camera to nicely stream over the internet. I think I've finially managed in a complete kludge manner!

After looking for something animated to film to test it with... I came up with the following setup...

Clunky Chatroom

Basically, you visit the magical webpage which gives you access to the stream, and gives you a box for your name and the text you want to be sent to the 'chatroom'. .. It then gets figlet'ed to the display of the server...

Example of the screen

For all who's watching to see.

Clearly, this fun thing isn't really going to last that long... I can't access the front of my PC! But join in the fun whilst you still can! :-)
