This module is an Linux only mjpg server plug-in for another EPICS support module/framework: areaDetector by Mark Rivers, University of Chicago. It makes extensive use of the http server from the mjpeg-streamer project, and uses a combination of this and jpeglib to allow clients such as Firefox or MPlayer to view a compressed stream of the data produced by an areaDetector driver.
