Webcam video over a home network

Hello,

What software is out there for webcam video and audio over a multi computer home network? I would like to set it up for my sister 's three kids. Just want them on their wireless LAN. The kids computers are all running Win7 Home Premium.

Free is good.

If you can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated. TIA.

VLC media player will stream video over a network, and it's free.

Install VLC on the PC with the camera, that performs the video capture from the camera and sends it out over the network. Install VLC on another PC and it will play the stream, or you could stream it to a PS3, and I think you can also use Windows Media Player to play the stream.
