.NET Rocks Roadtrip Webcam Videos

I'm collecting frames from the DNR Roadtrip webcam (dunno what to do with them), but so are other people!

Paul Sturgill has been assembling the daily collections into videos (along with Franklin Brothers music). After he stopped, I tried my hand in it.

The software that I used creates AVI's, and I selected the DivX codec cause that seems to be all the rave (but, video production is NOT my forte).

I'm open to suggestions for making this better, like how to create something that would actually stream from the server instead of apparently downloading first, and then playing from the internet cache.

Apparently, the webcam broke on the trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco. :(
