A friend of mine wants me to wire up his house with cameras for an "onlnie tv show" while I have the knowhow to wire them throughout the house I have no idea what I need in order to get the video feeds online. I would assume a good computer and some form of special hardware/software combination. Any ideas? anyone know? I will be using dome cameras with standard rca video output with no audio. Really I have no idea how I am going to set this up and need help thanks

That sounds like quite a lot of fun.
Probably you should consider a video card like the ATI All In Wonder series that allows for standard RCA input, but whatever it is make sure it's beefy because that much video, and streaming video in general is hard on the compy 386.

Make sure you have plenty of RAM, lots of Video dedicated memory (eg. 256mb card, or something excessive.) I know hauppage makes basic video acessories, you might want to check them out, but ATI makes the All In Wonder accessories as well.

Probably you want to focus on outgoing bandwidth for whatever internet you set him up on, nothing like a laggy video stream. Think T1. Haha, or just something fast.
