Sure, theoretically, it would not be the most reliable way to do it though. You could set up a station with a live webcam call from some remote location.

You better bet would be to use some other software, that is actually designed for this online veiwing of webcams.

There are lots of these softwares, an example would be eyespyfx.com ,

I can't run my webcam on Skype.


Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Not working ? - troubleshoot your drivers and software - get your cam working before moving on

Working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

Hp pavilion m9250f pc + hpw 2408h monitor setting up webcam


Now I'm not 100% certain on this BUT I do believe that the HP 2408 does not have an incorporated webcam. The little dot on the left hand side, that you're undoubtedly confusing with a webcam, is in fact an ambient light sensor. You're going to have to stump up some cash and go out and buy a webcam I'm afraid.
