Overview

The goal of this project is to create a way to utilize the webcam of a remote Beagle Board XM via a web browser without having to install software on the user's computer. Then using this as a base software we will create a program that can cycle through multiple webcams on the XM board.

Results of Research:

HTML5

The multimedia tools presented in HTML5 is very useful for accessing the local devices. The issue this presents for this project is that we want to access the camera of the XM not of the computer accessing the page.

Currently the use of the canvas object seems to be the HTML5 mechanism to display the video.
