Would it be possible to create a server that can stream live video and people could connect to the Server IP via their browser and watch the stream? :)

As far as I can tell, if you can get a camera working on your pi and can get the image buffer, you can stream it out for web browsers as a motion jpeg,

How about making the Pi a mini DVR for recording inside a car (race car)?

Definitely, with H264 encoding you will be able to write a lot of video onto your SD-card.

This sort of application is exactly what I am looking to do with my Pi.

I have just picked up one of these little beauties http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DTX1-2820L-Gl ... 1022311837, and intend to get on logging data from it as soon as I receive it.

Works over SPI and has all the sensors I could need in a car. I have looked at the USB camera options and none of them seem like the right way to go, so the CSI camera is looking mighty sweet.

I have to admit, I'm still new to some of this, any chance someone could explain in more simple terms how to do this?
