Hi,
using unrealscript and sockets is it possible to read a texture from a remote server and apply it on-the-fly on a mesh?

Thank you

Because texture data is not accessible from within UnrealScript. You can try interpreting the data and draw it to a ScriptedTexture, though.

Is there a way to stream a video into texture from an external source like a web cam?

Not without an engine license so you can get at the native code.
