    Default Webcam?

    I have a web site which I would like to add a webcam to. Has anyone any foolproof info to offer me or perhaps links that could tell me how to set one up. Thanks in advance.

    I would suggest http://www.surveyorcorp.com/ and webcam32 as an easy to use program. Site will explain how to set up.

    Most new webcams come with software you could use for that and the software of course will have instructions (a.k.a. help file)/tutorials to help you.

    The first thing you do is check with your ISP Web cams use a lot of bandwidth and some IPS's will charge extra.
    One popualr webcam software comes from Coffee Cup http://www.coffeecup.com/software/
    This is a commercial product but does have a trial version.
    Other commercial products are available from http://www.webcamsoft.com/en/ezcast.html

    First you have to decide how much if any you are willing to spend on hard/software. Do you want your media streaming? or stored on a database? Movies take up tons of room, and kill your internet connection. Quicktime makes good streaming software but it costs a bundle. Webcams can range anywhere from $20-100's of dollars.

    Good work, ok advice- well written, spelling ok, nice one 321, ( from a patronising old git) At least you did not give up; despite well meaning words, good on ya.
