Got the following:
1 web server, any OS, any tweaks you might need
1 laptop with a web camera, WLAN&3G(UMTS) modem, any OS/tweaks you need on it
What I need:
I want you to create a solution for broadcasting video from the laptop to the web server using the web camera with already existing out-of-the-box techniques or create your own software for it. The solution should be easy to use, if the laptop can be configured to automatically start all needed services, connect to any available networks (user only needs to push the power button and boot the laptop basically) and then start broadcasting/streaming then this is a bonus, but it´s not an requirement.
There are web cameras with built in 3G or wlan that can do this without the need of a connected laptop, or a stripped down linux appliance can also replace the laptop - any solution that you think is best for the job.
What will I use this stuff for:
Let´s say for example that I want to share a live outdoor soccer game with the world, and I´m not happy with sopcast.
The broadcasted stream should also be stored on the web server for future usage

I have experience with a wide variety of linux tools and server. I can setup webcasting/streaming server and customize it to your needs. Check my ratings and reviews. Regards Babu
Can be done in various ways. Do you have a dedicated server? Your budget is low and a built from scratch solution cannot be developed within this budget so Are you willing to use flash com server?. Thanks(Naeem)
