I was able to capture video from a web cam and save it in a avi file. Then thought of working with RTP. Well everything worked fine except that the live stream captured from webcam is streamed to applet player in html page so cool locally, but doesn't stream to remote machines (on LAN) . Besides tricky part is that the player gets created and i see no exception messages in Java Console. By the way i have signed the jar file to ensure applet security. Any suggestions are appreciated.
