I'm stuck on a project I have I need to find a way to stream my home webcam onto my mobile phone, in this case on a Blackberry bold 9700, also I have an I pod touch 2.0. the problem I keep coming across is that every program I find askes for money, I am looking for a way to do this for free, ive been trying using vlc but have so far been unable to get the stream to work, any help would be great

What exactly did you try already? –  fretje Mar 12 '10 at 8:20
