I have Axis IP cam which produces mjpeg, from my pc i grab the wideo
with wget into fifo, encoding it and cutting in parts with ffmpeg. 
Using parts of the video in pd. It works.
problem comes when you need uninterrupted stream. 
Emptying buffer crashes installation.
There are IP cams that produce mpeg4, 3gp (Vivotek), mp4, or other
formats, but you would have to receive stream in pd and stream it 
from there again i guess.
