This paper presents a way to provide pseudo-live streaming video from an Internet Protocol (IP) camera system to client computers using an internet browser that can display Hyper Text Markup Language 5 (HTML 5) pages. This is called pseudo-live streaming because the video stream is not packed in streaming protocols, such as Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP). This method does not involve the installation of plugins in the client side as most of the modifications are done on the server side,

The initial research involved the development of a tool to convert packetized elementary streams that contains extra manufacturer data into an elementary stream. The developed tool was able to convert packetized elementary streams from an IP camera into an elementary stream. The developed tool can be used to as a building block to provide a pseudo-live streaming experience.
