  The following situations I can get good results:

  a) I can get video from the Axis camera via http
(http://<ip>/axis-cgi/mjpg/video.cgi) and to see it onscreen.

  b) I can get video from the Axis, transcode it, and stream it over
the network, without seeing it onscreen.

  But I cannot get both. I cannot transcode-and-stream while viewing
it. The viewer simply stops.

  AFAIK, version 0.7.2 is the latest stable version, isn't it? I need
a stable version to use.

  Mmmmm... I'm *really* in a hurry with this... actually, I'm
interested in the Axis 230 MPEG-2, which has video/audio capabilities
builtin... if that model were unusable for my needs, I would need to
hack the audio input within the HTTP input no matter the effort...
