    Hi Alexander,

    What a great site. Currently I have been building a website for my family to post pictures as currently we live in different areas of the world. I am using windows SharePoint 3.0

    I like to work on it on the weekends. I have recently decided that i would like to start a project with adding a Webcam to my site. I have looked everywhere for a web part; however I have not been successful. I am not a developer by any means therefore I need to use a solution that someone has created.

    Do you know of anyway that I can get a web cam streaming from my site. I have noticed a person that has a SharePoint site and is streaming a live Webcam; however there were no contact details to ask advice, and I came across this great site and thought I would drop you a line.

    Hi Jamie,

    You are the first person who has asked me this question. I have not looked into streaming video on a SharePoint site through a Webcam. Because of the way SharePoint uses resources, I am not sure how well that will work but you never know. I will look into this when I get a chance and if I found a solution I will post the solution and e-mail you as well. Do you happen to know the URL for the SharePoint site that’s currently streaming live Webcam?

    Were you ever able to find anything out about the webcam streaming? We have an interest in doing something similar, so I’m trying to find out the best way to go about it.

    Rick, No, I didn’t get a chance to really work on this.

    I tried to download the zip file but I got 404 error.

    I apologize for the inconvenience. My new ISP is running a Linux server which requires the URL to be case-sensitive. I have updated the URL. You should now be able to download the file. Thanks.

    Hi Alexander,

    The Media Player Web Part is available on the SharePoint 2007 now – so thanks for that. Is it possible to link this media player to a list to get the file name (connection is grey)? Is it possible to play streamed videos (we have them on a streaming server, mms://…)?

    I could not get a video played, but I do not know if it is a problem of the video or of the installation. It starts, but does not show anything.

    Hi Alexander,

    Can you please give the code for Media player Webpart for playing .mpeg files in SharePoint 2010? I am able to play .wmv files but when I try to play .mpegs, I get an error “media failed to load”.

    Thanks a lot for Media player WP in MOSS 2007.

    Hi Alexander,

    The Media Player Web Part is available on the SharePoint 2007 now. I created a Web part page and used link as you’ve mentioned but the video is not coming up in IE, it’s showing black screen but it works fine in Mozilla.
