This examples works with a Labtech Webcam Pro USB, a DLink WiFi adapter with C1 firmware version and the Phrozen SDK updated to the svn version 28 or higher (see Keep the SDK updated).
Quick set upTo try quickly this article flash your FOX Board LX with one of these fimage (How to reflash a FOX Board):
The Labtec Webcam Pro
After flashing, plug your webcam and start your browser on http://192.168.0.90:
Click on Servfox Start/Stop link and then on the "START" button.
After a while this message appairs:
Starting the server wait Using /lib/modules/2.6.15/kernel/drivers/media/video/videodev.ko Using /lib/modules/2.6.15/kernel/drivers/usb/media/spca5xx/spca5xx.ko done!! Resolution Large
Go back to 192.168.0.90 and click on Servfox Applet link.
A java applet will appair with the live streaming from the webcam:
Spcaview is a client video streaming available for Linux and Windows.
For the windows user it is possible to download the source and binary from this link:
spcaview -w 192.168.0.90:7070 -s 640x480
Double click on it and you will see the streaming from the FOX Board:
Using a D-Link WiFi USB adapter DWL-G122 it is possible to send the video streaming through a WiFi link in Ad-Hoc or Managed mode.
By default, the image generated from Phrozen SDK (or the ready to run fimages downloadable from this article),
are configurated to set up the WiFi adapter in Ad-hoc mode with IP=192.168.10.90, no encryption (WEP="off"), channel=1 and ESSID="FOX".
If you meet any troubles to see the FOX Board LX probably you have to set up the file /etc/conf.d/net.wireless to be visible to your LAN.
In Windows XP, if you have a WiFi interface or WiFi USB adapter installed on your PC, you can start to scan the WiFi link available and obtain a list similar to this:
Select the connection and type the Connect button:
Manually configure the new network wireless connection with IP 192.168.0.91:
Now you can start your browser to have access to the FOX on http://192.168.10.90.
Login to the FOX Board (TELNET access) and type:
[root@axis /root]106# spcaload Using /lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/media/video/videodev.o Using /lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/usb/spca5xx/spca5xx.oThen type:

The green led on your camera now could be on to indicate the camera is ready to operate.
Start the streaming server typing:
[root@axis /root]106# servfox -d /dev/video0 -s 640x480 -w 7070 servfox version: 1.1.3 date: 11:12:2005 (C) firstname.lastname@example.org wrong spca5xx device Waiting .... for connection. CTrl_c to stop !!!!
I don't know why appear "wrong spca5xx device" but the FOX is now ready to send a video streaming to one or more client on port 7070.
