Set width=320 and height=240, and you can just use the built-in X11
forwarding of ssh (connect with: ssh -c arcfour -Y user at host, and type
the mplayer command). 

If you want better quality than that, you'll have to have mencoder
encoding from the webcam on the local computer, stream that encoded
video over the network live (with netcat/nc or ssh), and playback
the stream on the remote computer.
