Live streaming from IP camera
I working on a website that will show live stream from an IP camera.
The web will serve end users in Africa, so the physical server must be in Africa. Meaning no cloud solutions can be implemented.
I think that actual video stream will not work well due to the slow internet bandwidth there.
If someone thinks otherwise, I will be glad to hear his advice.
So I plan to implement it with something like a GIF animation.
I not a beginner to web development, but still not the sharpest one yet…
Will be very appreciate on an advice on how to approach this issue.

I don't know about server-side implementation of this IP camera.
<img id="my_cam" src="blank.jpg" alt="my camera">
document.getElementById('my_cam').src = 'http://my_cam_server.com/?time=' + new Date().time();
}, 5000); //5 seconds delay between frames

but in this case imp not mistaking, the end user open a request directly to the camera.
and we can have the camera work on too many sessions...it will collapse
