Hello Laurent,

I noted in Connectix' announcement of its new color cam that is going to
include software which allows exactly the situation you mentioned: the
camera takes pictures on a regular basis (once every 15 minutes for example)
and links them to your web page for "real time" viewing. I don't know if
this software will be included in any future update to Connectix' software
for its b&w cameras, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were... You should
have a look at

At the moment, there are no video codecs included with the net browsers, but
now that audio codecs are available (CoolTalk in Netscape Navigator 3.0) it
is just a matter of time until there will be video ones as well.
