Help for using Live Webcams for a Collage

Post by Lentin___ »

Hello out there, maybe I'm in the right place: I would need technical advice for an upcoming art project.
Installation setup:
A beamer connected to a computer project four zoomed-in excerpts from a freely accessible live transmission of an internet webcam from public places. The excerpts are to be displayed as tiles next to each other on a wall of an exhibition space. The live videos come from different webcam websites on the internet.
Does anyone have an idea how I can technically implement this with the help of a suitable program so that I can project the different video clips live next to each other?

Would be very grateful for any tip!

Kind regards
Lentin

Sorry for the late response to your post!

If you just want 4 streams to come into a computer and place them on the screen for projecting, I would use OBS and size the video sources how you want it to look. Since the webcams are publicly available, you can use HTML sources in OBS.
