    Your options will depend on the power of your RPi. Which model is it? What kind of webcam are you using? Are you ok using scripts (shell, Python)? – user96931 Dec 27 '19 at 17:56
  • The raspberry need a licence key for hardware decoding of additional codecs (not on the Pi4). Also, you need to adapt the framerate to the hardware and network performances. 1 - Mount Wi-Fi Access Point on your raspberry 2 - connect your Windows client to this WAP 3 - Run python script webserver (use picamera example webserver stream) on your Raspberry. 4 - Open web-browser on windows and navigate to the good IP or name (your RPi name or IP addr), 5- Show your stream ! – Ephemeral Dec 28 '19 at 10:52
