Is it possible for classic browsers to stream video?

I’ve set up a live video stream from my webcam using VLC and would like Amiga users to be able to view it from their browsers.

Take IBrowse for example. When I give it the stream URL http://myipaddress:8080/stream.wmv I see the data does transfer but of course the WMV format doesn’t decode.

Since HAM video plays so well, is there a format of video (or continuous GIF/IFF?) that VLC (or anything else) could be set to to allow IBrowse to view the stream?

    The title should probably rephrased as “Is it possible for classic browsers to stream video?” otherwise its topic is pretty unclear without reading the full post.

    Which OS version you need? For OS 3.x is there Netsurf, it needs lots of libraries, AmiTCP etc, but is better that all other older Amiga browser and in the options is some youtube handler, which will you redirect on some page, when i would include video adress a download *mp4. Its better than nothing. You need something like Amiga browser with HTML5 or Flash support, i doubt that they exists, but never were too dare too even google it. Otherway would be, video player with network support, there are players like Frogger or FFshow, which working locally maybe they can work with same samba network address or even through http, is worth of shot, but its a long shot.
