I did the same - but using VLC as a Streaming-Server instead of webcam-server.

CPU-Load is roughly at 3% as I am just forwarding the MJPEG-Stream of my webcam.

I tried using a Logitech USB webcam with the 'cheese' app. Taking still shots kinda worked, but the cpu bottoms out, going to 0% idle, and video is pretty much a no-go with that setup.

Same here. I wonder anyone has got the sound streaming work for the same device (or any uvc camera with a mic) on sheevaplug?

is there no way to do this without recompiling the kernel? it seems a bit extreme?

I did something similar; it's mainly for development.

I used GNU/Debian Lenny on UBIFS and installed GStreamer (I used my base from KNX/EIB http://chiana.homelinux.org/~marc/eib_sheeva.html)

Code:
$ apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-base gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer0.10-tools

Send with
Code:
$ gst-launch v4l2src ! video/x-raw-yuv,format=(fourcc)YUY2,width=(int)640,height=(int)480 ! ffmpegcolorspace ! videoflip method=3 ! jpegenc ! udpsink host=226.226.226.123 port=1234

Receive with
Code:
$ gst-launch udpsrc uri=udp://226.226.226.123:1234 ! queue2 ! decodebin ! autovideosink

Note that you can optimise a lot by tweaking the parameters and replacing the encoder with something else.

The simplest might be just to

Code:
apt-get install motion

and change the value of the
Code:
webcam_localhost off

in
Code:
/etc/motion/motion.conf

Point your browser to http://sheeva-ip:8081/ and you should have a live feed; the images are saved in /tmp/motion/

Have a look at the config, I disabled some options (save movies), ...

It is so generous of you to share the with us the instruction about the USB surveillance camera. I just followed the links and found out that using USB camera as a surveillance device can be managed remotely. Today, IP cameras are not affordable to everyone due to their higher prices, however with the Plug Computer and a simple USB camera that you didn't use long time it is possible to have IP Camera.

shplug: based on this you will need to use backports if you are using lenny? (i think; not super familiar with debian)
