Webcam stream latency with Raspberry pi


I was trying to stream video from a USB camera "Webcam" on Raspberry pi over ssh using "motion" the frame rate was 15 frps but there is about 2 seconds latency I switched web browsers but it's the same.Also I need to know if there was an advantage on using Raspberry pi Camera module instead of the webcam,my application is ROV operated over 20m ethernet tether.



I was playing with motion before on the BBB and experienced some significant lag too. I think it does some conversion on the fly and that is quite CPU intensive.

I don't know enough about the Raspberry PI Camera module really.

Is there any alternative software I could use for streaming video ?
