Subject:Viewing IP Camera Output

> I discovered an IP video camera a little while ago (central Ottawa, over looking one of the parks) sending data over UDP packets. I would have liked to have viewed the output, and possibly recorded it, as it was Canada Day and the park was a hive of activity to celebrate. How can I do this? OS is Ubuntu Linux.

You'd have to do something like a livetap/named pipe output out of kismet (or just use tcpdump in conjunction) and then strip the 802.11 headers down to 802.3, then filter it for just that udp stream, and then throw the data into something like mplayer.

Probably doable, but I don't know of anything which does it for you.
