PPA description

"MJPG-streamer", is a command line application to stream JPEG files over an IP-based network from the webcam to a viewer like Firefox, Cambozola, VLC, a Windows Mobile device or mobilephone that has a webbrowser. It can make use of hardware compression of certain webcams, in order to reduce CPU cycles of the server. This makes it a light and less CPU hungry solution for embedded devices and regular servers, that should not spend most of their computing power for compressing videoframes. For example it consumes less then 10% CPU on a 200 MHz router hardware when streaming a 960x720 pixel video.

Works very well together with motion and zoneminder.
