How to stream with VLC Media Player?

by patman2136 / December 3, 2008 9:22 PM PST

Hi, I am trying to stream my webcam and microphone to the network. I need something that will push it out to an ip address that users can access. I have tried VLC Media Player. It seems to have the capability, but I can't get it to stream. Other computers will get a 403 error. Here's what I got:
Logitech Quickcam Communicate Delux S 7500
Logitech USB Desktop Microphone
Windows XP SP3.
Any ideas?
