It is not possible to use the Camcorder as webcam using USB interface as the Camcorder does not have the USB Streaming feature.

You may connect the Camcorder to the A/V input of the Computer to use it as webcam.. However, it is required to use a software which is compatible for capturing videos from A/V interface to use it as webcam.
