Wit BuddyCam you can see your Friends View in Multiplayer, if he/she allows it. You can even observe your Pets in Single- & Multiplayer (as of 1.5.1d). You can fully customize the position and size of the buddycam-screen and the renderquality.The only limitation to the number of screens is the power of your Computer. (Tested with 3 screens.)
1. Install Minecraft
2. Install Forge(from here) (Modloader no longer supported)
3. Put the "buddycam-x.y.z.zip" in the "mods"-Folder
4. Start Minecraft
5. Press P (Menu) & Enjoy
...or look at a Mob/Player and press O for creating a Cam
If you want to watch "PlayerX" you need to have my mod ("PlayerX" doesn't have to). After Installation start Minecraft and join the same server like "PlayerX" and create a Screen for "PlayerX". He will have to write you "!bca" to allow you view his View. As soon as you are in the same area as "PlayerX" the screen will appear...

Made it possible to disable automatic asking for Permission to view Other's View (for Spam-Protected Servers)

The Idea is from me. The code is mostly my own. Some lines are from an Open-GL-Tutorial.A lot of tips from ThVortex from the #mcp-moding Channel on the IRC-Server irc.esper.net helped me creating the main-function. (Thanks again a lot!) Please don't use (decompiled) source (or parts of it) without my permission.
Feel free to use this mod in your mod-pack and/or youtube-video, but please link to this Thread. (For Modpacks: The Link which should appear in the modlist in the forge-menu is enough but an additional link on the modpack-page would be nice...)
A message in this Thread would be nice but not necessary.
Okay, I'm a bit confused, how EXACTLY do you use this mod?
The OP really isn't clear on what you must do to see the other player's screen.
There isn't any ingame-configuration, yet.
You need to configure the screen(s) before starting Minecraft...
For example if you want to watch "PlayerX" you need to have my mod ("PlayerX" doesn't have to). After Installation you have to define that in the configuration file that you want to observe "PlayerX", then start Minecraft and join the same server like "PlayerX".
As soon as you are in the same area as "PlayerX" he will get a message to accept the observation (works with vanilla features) and when he accepts it, the screen will appear...
You cannot see entities in Multiplayer with this mod(Shot Arrows, Minecarts(meaning you cant ride them too), activated tnt(before explosion), Ghast fireballs, ender crystals)
I uninstalled the mod and the entities could be seen again.
Hey romibi, this is very impressive! I am making a mod with similar functionality and would really love to know how you pulled this off, in technical terms. If you don't want to post a bunch of technical stuff here, could I chat with you by email or skype some time? I would be very grateful.
