how to get a frame or mms from an ip cam using a mobile phone?

Hello,

Excuse me if I am not so clear on what I a looking for, but its
getting very hard to find any software,application or information that
will let me access or get a frame(still image) from a web cam or ip
cam.

I have different ip cams connected to the internet, they continuously
send images refreshed over the internet.

I would like some kind of software,application or the necesarry
routines in order to be able to send a frame to the mobile phone that
tried to access the ip address of the given ip cam.

I am not sure if what I need is wap, xhtml, java, or mms sending after
a a mobile requests it.

How can I achieve this? Please refer me to some software developer
that you may know that lets achieve this. Do you know any websites
that already provide such a service? I mean they have web cams from
which you can get an image from the mobile cellular phone ? I may
contact them and ask them how they did it.

All your help regarding this is deeply appreciated.

Thanks,

Mario

Doesn't the IP cams address (in a browser) just return an image updated on a
specific interval?

OK, you need to find out what protocol is being used, WAP (probably) or HTTP
(GPRS).

The easiest method might be to create a WAP page on an internet host site
and just reference the IPCam image url in the returned page.

eg. <img src="http:\\CAMIPADDRESS"/>

Check out: http://www.cellular.co.za/downloads/download_dotwap.htm if you
are unsure of how to create a WAP page? Personally I know nothing about WAP
at all so I can't even say if it supports images.

You need a WAP page whic returns a .wmbp or .gif image

You will have to determine from what your WAP browser retuns as
headers, what capabilites is supports, RE color depth and resolution,
then resize your image accordingly. People thow $$$ at this - are you
prepard to do the development ?

Cheers - Neil.
