Live video streaming

A small British company called Camstreams provides a neat little service: you provide a live web cam stream, and they then redistribute it to up to 15 users, much more than most home broadband links could do by themselves.

Camstream uses Windows Media format and the quality is perfectly good. The site itself is quite well designed with a "who's being watched" section showing the streams which currently have at least one viewer. The stream can also be embedded into your own website.

With a limit of 15 users watching a stream at any one time it's obviously not going to set the world on fire, but it's a fun service to play around with.
