I guess I hadn't considered the video format so I had better do some searches :)

The closest thing I have found without a media player is:
http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/timessquare/livelennon.html  but I am not
totally sure this is 'live' plus there is a lag in the streaming even with
broadband :(

If anyone has any examples of live streams and a walk through with the setup
that would be great.
