  1. I have the exact same need as you mentioned on your posting about a membership site. I want the cameras to feed from the local PC to go to a heavy duty web server at another location with good connectivity. The remote web server will render the web page with the video. All the systems I have found thus far function as a web server themselves on the same machine as the camera. BroadCam is great, but it both collects the camera input and ALSO functions as a web server. That means that you can have VERY few simultaneous users 1. That PC is NOT a heavy duty server 2. Generally the internet connections at such a site are very slow. 3. It is also VERY easy for someone to go around your main membership web site security and just go directly to the BroadCam server IP I am looking for software I can use to at one or more remote sites and at each remote site there is a dedicated PCs with something lke BroadCam to “Send” (“Feed”, “Push” or whatever the term is) the output from the cameras (and possibly audio) to a central Web server running Microsoft Windows Server using IIS for web pages at a central location in another city. That will mean it is NOT exactly Real Time (maybe 30 seconds later), but short of a something like Helix server from RealNetworks (a LOT more money) this is as good as it will get. My intent is to have a high end web server capable of rendering numerous different web sites and many pages with the various camera feeds and their past recordings to many users and all users be validated on that one central web server. I MAY have to include a messaging server to receive al the feeds (Push), but I am NOT sure. Those PCs running at the remote sites running BroadCam would **NOT** render the web pages. They would just send a video/audio feed to the main central web server. Hopefully the remote camera sites would NOT even need an open incoming internet port. It sounds simple, but I am not able to figure out HOW to do it. If you have any suggestions, it would certainly be appreciated! Joel in Houston
