I have two Linux computers on a LAN (call them Foo and Bar), and I'd like to find a way to capture stream video from the webcam on Foo to Bar.
I'd like to avoid using a GUI client which uses a complex network protocol, like Telepathy, which uses XMPP, or Skype, which uses a proprietary protocol, and I feel like there's probably a nice, simple, UNIX-oriented approach using the command-line and pipes, like
bar$ ssh Foo "cat /dev/video0" > stream.avi.
Maybe I need to use the gstreamer command-line tool. I'd appreciate any guidance anyone can offer on this.
