I will be setting one up next week so should have more for you then. But
there really isn't much for PHP to do here. Basically you need something
like camstream to regularly create an image somewhere and then a little
meta-refresh page that reloads that image. You are unlikely to be able to
stream out the video feed in any sort of realtime fashion unless you have
a whole lot of bandwidth going into this daycare. The best you can do is
most likely to update the image every couple of seconds.
You can find camstream here:
I am assuming you have the right kernel driver for your webcam? Assuming
a USB cam, see: http://www.smcc.demon.nl/webcam/
