I just had a client request a live web cam feed, and I have no idea where to start.

Has anyone done this? Have a good resource on how to do it? I'm totally at a loss in this realm.

(Just FYI I am proficient in PHP/mySQL stuff, so I do have some technical know-how) ;)

Well, I found this nice tutorial : http://developers.webcamworld.com/methods.html

And also found out that it's a snapshot, not a streaming video feed.

Now he wants to do it on his in house server which is a funky-configured Windows server- somehow I need to talk him into doing it on WestHost...

Have you asked West Host about this and if the account they have could handle something like this?

Not sure what they client needs are but you might want to check out http://www.stickam.com/ I've used the service in the past and it is pretty easy to get set up and started with. It can be "integrated" to an extent into an existing page on a website.
