Background: AmphibiaCam.com was an experimental site to showcase a real-time webcam feed from a frog tank in our living room. It all started when my wife, an elementary school teacher, received two African dwarf frogs from a student during Teacher Appreciation Week. One day, while watching the active juvenile frogs, I thought, “we should broadcast this!” A couple hundred dollars later (stupid, stupid) I figured out how to send 5 frames per second of 800×600 pixel video to Justin.TV to then embed the feed in AmphibiaCam.com. If you would like the technological secret sauce, send me an email and I'll let you know how to do it.
Challenges: Learning ModX, Researching / Implementing the hardware / software needed to stream real-time video to the ‘net.
