I have a small networked video camera ([url removed, login to view] ) that I need to view streaming video from with 3rd party software. The Lorex video server outputs as a UDP stream, and this stream needs to be converted to a TCP stream (MJPEG or any other format that VLC can process) I believe this can be done with a small program that connects to the UDP stream and converts it. You are free to use the linux ffmpeg tool to assist in stream conversion. I don't have detailed specs of the protocol, but I have a decompiled java applet that shows how the stream is connected to and displayed on a web page. reqs: - a linux program that pulls in the UDP video stream, (authenticate with the video network server if necessary) and output the stream to MJPEG, or any other type of standard video format that can be viewed with VLC and (converted with ffmpeg to mjpeg). - the program needs to attempt to reconnect automatically if the input stream gets disconnected temporarily. - You may write this in Java, Perl, C, C++, even in Ruby if you wish. I expect it will not be more then 50 lines of code (it doesn't seem to take much more than that in the java applet to show the stream). What I have: - the decompiled java applet that displays the stream in the browser. Unfortunately it didn't fully decompile correctly (ie you can't recompile and run it again), but all the code that you need is readable. If you want to have a look at this code before making a bid on my project, please contact me. - I will poke a hole in my firewall and give you access to the web interface of my camera for testing. I can also give you a local account on my linux server for testing of the stream on my network. All in all I believe that for someone who is familiar with TCP/UDP protocols, video streams and Linux, this may be a fairly simple project. I will likely release your code under an open source license and will give you credit if desired.
