Here is what I have, I need to dump live shots of the TV studio I work at to the web, they can be refreshed every however long, its not a big high performance deal.

I have:

Quadra 660AV (Mac OS 8.1)
PowerMac 7500/100 (Mac OS 9.1)
PowerMac 7100/66 (AV card installed in NuBus slot, Mac OS whatever)

I need to run S-Video into the Mac and have the Mac dump it to the web. That is it, no audio, no high frame rates, quick and easy and very lowend.

Anyone know how to do this?

I have plenty of cameras that can dump out to the S-Video or composite video in on these Macs, I just need to get that video signal routed through the Mac to the web.

Thanks in advance,


The Bandit
