Hi. Noob<-- This will very shortly become very obvious.
I write. I'm in the middle of a cop story where the bad guy has a surveillance camera mounted to watch a kidnap victim and he's using a high-gain antenna with a cable attachment to a laptop to capture the feed from about two miles away.
SO - cops find the laptop and can watch the feed, but don't know where the victim is, though they know it must be line-of-sight. They need to capture the feed and send it to a detective in another town. But - the bad guy's stuff, including his laptop, is evidence. And, the kidnap is on-going. That is, they need to do this without interfering with the equipment that exists or disturbing the feed.
I do know you can use a camera, antenna, cable and computer to capture. I don't know - and would like to know -
1. If the bad guy can leave the laptop and have it automatically upload the feed to some online site?
2. If there's a wireless (or other) way to intercept the signal from the antenna and capture it on another laptop?
I'm sorry I'm an idiot about these things. And very humbly ask anyone with any expertise for guidance. I'd really like it if people who weren't idiots and read my story not to have to groan and roll their eyes because either you can't do that - or why didn't they just?
