If you convert it to the right format I don't see why not.

I use zoneminder to keep an eye on my house while away, and it works just fine over my iphone in Safari.

There is not a system for watching real-time video on the iPhone.

However, I have seen plugins for a few turn-key security systems that allows the system to export a series of images at regular intervals. If you wanted, you could read those images into a web server and use a simple javascript page to auto update the image every couple seconds.

It would also be a lot less taxing on battery life and would work on EVERYTHING.
