SVL: JMRI WebThrottle with Cab View Video Feed

In preparation for the upcoming Virtual Open House at Silicon Valley Lines, I have been toying with the JMRI Web Throttle code to integrate a video view. I also somewhat limited Web Throttle functionality to meet the needs of the Open House setup. It's not perfect, but seems to work reasonably well on the Welztalbahn. The real test will be Friday evening, when I'll try this out at the club.

Contrary to the earlier tests I did, this version's video link URL and locomotive name are set dynamically in JMRI, so that it works correctly even for remote operators out on the Internet.

How did it go?

With some tweaking, it worked well. We now have multiple options how we present the remote ops experience to operators, and the public.
