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

    That thread title is misleading. I was expecting to find some reference to pr0n here :eek: but thank goodness I was wrong.

    You should check this out (only if you use a mac for storing surveillance footage) http://www.bensoftware.com/ss/index.html

    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.
