Recently, I recorded some night vision videos of my backyard, trying to capture a possum. The video signal is captured through a bullet cam connected to a camcorder. The camcorder is, in turn, connected to the computer via Firewire. Unreal Live Server, on the computer, captures the video in Windows Advanced Systems Format (ASF).
When I tried to playback the file in Windows Media Player, I got an error saying that I'm missing a codec. Going to Windows Media Player Error Message Help page, I learned that it's the DVSD codec that I'm missing. Strange that ASF has a hard time playing back this DV format, since I have no trouble capturing and playing the DV format with Windows Movie Maker and Windows Media Player.
Searching on the web, I found that Panasonic produces the Panasonic DV codec, which can playback the DVSD media files. I've attached it below for your convenience. You'll have to extract the two files, right-click on the INF file, and then choose to "Install" it. After I installed the codec, I was able to playback the ASF files just fine.

Title: video streaming over the Internet
Weblog: Camera Hacker
Excerpt: I want to stream some real-life videos of my baby from one room to another in my house today. So I started thinking about this streaming software. I think I found just what I need: Unreal Media Server suite of software. It's a set of freeware software for streaming pre-recorded video and live video. . . .
