Guy I know is the networking guy for the University of Hawaii, and this is his latest thing.

This is the temporary link to his demonstration server that he is publishing to try and get some load benchmarks for sizing the permanent video server. So, Mr Phelps, this link will self-destruct once that has been accomplished. But until then, watch this!

Live video stream from the ALOHA underwater oceanographic observatory at 4735 meters down, off the coast of Hawaii. And I got kind of a giggle when I opened up the stream while I was waiting in line at the deli a couple hours ago. That I was watching live video feed from a couple of miles underwater, a third of the way around the planet, on my portable telephone. Living in the future is sometime really freaking awesome. *laughs*

Future plans are the second camera, and a waterfall display of the hydrophone data. He also mentions that the lights are hugely expensive oil filled LED lamps. And to change one, when it burns out, costs $60k per day for the ROV and mothership to change it.

You may need to cut and paste this direct into VLC viewer on windows machines, association doesn't work.
