video from mac to pc via ethernet cable?

Specs: Windows XP
I'm trying to set up a system where a lecturer can sit at home and give his (video and audio) class across the street via an ethernet cable strung across the street. The only problem is he has a mac, and we in the class running it aren't going to leave our PCs for macs!
Is there any simple way to connect the mac to PC (without running through a router, as it slows down the system)?
If so, what programs will work best for both PC and mac for streaming the video (and are free, or cheapest!)
[BTW I don't think a 100m cable is too long for the signal. pls lmk if it needs a booster, and how to do so etc. if it does.]
Thank you

ethernet cables cannot get as lopng as 100 mt, but about(and a little less than) 50mt. You'll have to place an ethernet SW in between. You can try to use teamviewer--Yes, it has video chat. We once tried that at school and it worked kind of ok. And, it's free software.

I'm not sure what you're hoping to accomplish by running a cat5/cat6 cable across the street. :)

Why not just setup a meeting in Webex or other meeting/video sharing software?
