    How do you set up a live feed?

    I am looking to get my webcam setup on a website with a live feed (asap). Server space I have, webcam I have, the know how I do not.

    I am trying to set up a security camera (just for the weekend) for a family business and basically, all I want is to connect my webcam to a computer that is at the business, stick the cam on a shelf and be able to monitor the live feed online.

    Like I said, server space/domain names I have, but I just have absolutely no idea where to begin. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks.

    If you are just looking to monitor your business over the weekend, you may want to check into software for your Webcam which allows it to act as a security camera / motion detector.
    Google something like:
    use webcam for security or motion detector
    for example:

    Setting up a live feed like a Web broadcast is a much more complicated and expensive proceedure. First you need a server capable of live streaming, not just hosting, something like

    Then you need an encoder like Windows Media Encoder

    The simple solution, go the motion detector route.
