> Well, ultimately I would like to process in real time. Actually, at this point, if I could just get the camera stream from the camera (as h.264) over the network to my client, that would be great. Although, I do need to decompress it on that end. I'm guessing I can do that? Would like to load as DLL or .bundle (win or mac) or pull from a client that can hand me uncompressed frames.

I'd be interested to hear about real-time encoding too for a slightly
different case. My source would be a 3D engine which is rendering
frames to an ARGB buffer rather than a webcam.

Yes, bottom-post and turn of HTML/rich formatting if you want to avoid
being told off :)
