I'd like to setup my raspberry pi to work as an IP Camera. Can you please point me to guides on how to do that - I am unable to find resources in particular for the two-way audio part of it. I am looking for open source projects that i can combine/enhance to get this working.

Note: I had previously asked this question on stackoverflow and was advised to ask it here instead.

there's no audio input on RaspberryPi, you most definitely should reconsider the hardware platform for your project. or you may try to use usb-connected video cameras with built-in microphone.

video capture works quite well using motion, including web-interface to access the camera output. haven't tried it with the sound, mostly because of lack of the microphone.

    I am using a USB camera with microphone on it so that's where the sound would be coming from. Motion seems like a one-directional sort of solution from what I've seen - I don't think there's a way to do client->camera audio with it at all...

motion can be used to stream a webcam as an IP camera.
