Use Videocamera as Webcam

I have a friend who is trying to use their Canon videocamera as a webcam that can be viewable online. Is there a code I can use or some type of program that will allow them to use their videocamera as a webcam online?

The camera is going to be connected to a Windows machine, so the last two might work. I'll have to try it out and see.

Well,

first they will need a capture card if they have a non digital vc. If they have firewire or USB attached they are ready to go.

Plug it in, run the free Windows Media Encoder, http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...r/default.aspx (Watch the firewall) (remember the ip and the port it shows you), if your ip changes all the time, just get a free DynDNS.org account.

embed a standard windows media player script to a webpage and add the mms://youripnumber:portnumber into it. your broadcasting.

There is a 5 second delay by default on your end, you can change it.Your ISP probably has a 5 sec delay too (default).


If you want a tv station use flashcom, you can add channels, different speakers, live and video feeds, like this http://www.markettraders.com/banners/213Switcher.html

basically the same thing with the cami progs, most just tap into the wme or real producer.

The camera connects via a firewire port, and that works. I'll have to see if the media encoder works. Thanks for the info, I'll have to try it.
