I want to attach an analog camera to an old linux computer and directly pipe the /dev/video0 to another computer, where I can use it as a device again (so /dev/video0 should go to /dev/remote0, for example)
(Reason for doing this is that the computer does not have enough power to encode the video)
Is that possible? I've seen people can pipe the data directly from the device over ssh into mplayer, but I need to have some sort of reference point for Zoneminder.
Edit: As Phil Hannent said: SSH would probably also be too resource intensive for the hardware as it has to encrypt the data it sends. So is this also possible over a program like tcptunnel?
Edit2: On the Unix & Linux stackexchange site I found a question that uses this for piping over ssh:
ssh localhost dd if=/dev/video0 | mplayer tv://device=/dev/stdincan that be done over tcptunnel?
