Have a brand new install, with a brand new machine.. Something like dual core 3.0ghz, 4gb ram. 8 Port Card. Fresh install of 12.04 LTS, then installed the server and client from the repo via apt-get.
I'm having a very hard time getting the client to work on the server. It seems to work ok on my Windows laptop over wifi.. but it's dropping frames and generally unusable on the server itself.
I will say, outputting /dev/video0 to mplayer works quite well. Would this be the recommended setup? I intended to mount this monitor to the wall in my office and have the cameras displayed on it 24-7.
