We are using the WVC210 WLAN-Cameras (URL), this camera has a web server, so is accessible over a normal web-browser, to see the video transmission.
We just set it up with a normal WLAN-Router, so the camera is connected wireless to the router, and this router is connected to the internet (WAN). With the cisco video-software or the web-interface, it's now possible to stream the video.
Now we like to stream the Video on our Website, so people what visit our site can take a look at our company and so on.We are able to stream the Video with the MJEPG-Format, like the camera web-interfaces offers...
The problem is, with normal ip-transfer method, each user would connect directly to the camera and increases the data-transfer, the internet-connection will than overload easily.But the camera supports multi-casting, so the camera only transmit one data stream and all clients connected to this stream will receive the packages.
Our problem is, we do not have any knowledge about multi-casting and how it works, the camera has a normal ip-address and a pre-configured multicast address with group name, so how can we connect a client to this multicast group, without increasing the data-transfer with each new user? Would you recommend us to use the multicast function of this camera or put a server between the camera and the website?
How we can set up this multicast service and easily get a player for the stream on our website, without using many plug ins or special apps ?
