webcam_server is a server that can be used to host a video4Linux supported Webcam. It features caption text, image rotation and flipping, HTTP support, and logging. It allows a client to connect with the included Java applet and watch a real time video feed. The applet allows for frames/sec control. In addition, the browser can be pointed directly at the webcam_server listen port to grab the current frame as a JPEG.
