You will need:

A Camcorder (Firewire or Analog)
A Firewire Card (For Firewire Camcorder)
A Video Capture Card or TV Tuner (For an Analog Camcorder)

A way to connect the Camcorder to the corresponding cards.

The Eagletron TrackerCam Software.
Go to trackerCamhttp://www.trackercam.com/TCamWeb/download.htm
to download it, it is a free download. You need additional hardware to get full use of the software, but for a basic webcam this software is enough.Active WebCam captures images up to 30 frames per second from any video device including USB, analog cameras, TV-boards, camcorders, and from network IP cameras.

The program performs simultaneous recording and broadcasting from unlimited number of cameras.

WebcamDV allows you to have "the best quality webcam in the world:"

If you own a DV camcorder, or are about to buy one, wouldn't it be cool if you could use all its features by making it the world's best web cam? WebCamDV is a utility which runs in conjunction with your webcam software application. It lets your digital video camera with all its expensive features, act like a webcam! Imagine, a webcam with 600X zoom, auto focus, stereo sound, auto stabilizing, night vision, high quality optics, and more, depending on your camcorder.

DVDriver lets you iuse your camcorder as if it were a regular webcam:

DVdriver is a software tool that lets you use your camcorder with any software that works with webcams. It works by fooling Windows into thinking that your camcorder is just an ordinary USB webcam.

Use your camcorder with the full range of webcam software available today. Just plug your camcorder into your PC's Firewire port, run DVdriver and start the software you want to use.

What software do you use to turn your camcorder into a webcam?

Can i use samsung s630 for webcam???


Not all camcorders can be used as webcams. Since this is a still camera, I would not expect it to be able to be a web cam either...

Your camera is not a camcorder. It is a still camera that happens to take highly compressed video clips. These files are stored on your camera's memory card and can be transfered using the USB cable. You already know this.

There is nothing in the manual that even hints that it can be a webcam. So I will say it is not possible.

Since you can replace the memory card, with a bigger one, it is difficult to say how long you can record... If you need more video recording time, then just get more video cards. It says that on page 83 of the manual, "recording time : memory capacity dependent"... It will also depend on the quality of the video you select - higher quality uses more of the memory card space and looks OK. Lower quality uses less space, but does not look as good.

The problem of my camera is that no sound appear when i record a video..how can i solve this problem,thanks.


Hi music_divina ,


This could be due to the fact that you have a digital camera without an inbuilt microphone in it.

Usually camcorders do have in built microphone so that you can record sound as well as video simultaneously, whereas digital cameras are meant for high quality pictures , rather than videos.

So if you want to record good quality video along with audio , I would recommend you to get a camcorder.

If you have a webcam and you want to record audio along with video , then you can easily do it by using the microphone which is to be inserted in the mic slot just besides the speaker's slot with a microphone icon near it.

All you need to do is select the video recording source as your webcam and audio recording source as your microphone and there you go , you have the recording with audio.

Hope this helps ...:)

Can samsung Digimax 4010 be used as a web cam


To find out you should check on the Samsung website.

1. Navigate to http://www.samsung.com/au/.
2. Select Troubleshooting from the Support drop down menu, located top/right of screen.
3. In the Search product support field, type Digimax 4010. (NOTE: Check that it is 4010 and not 401). Press <Enter>.

Look at anything which appears to be relevant. I have quickly scanned the manual for the 401 and couldn't find anything that was related to using it as a WebCam however, SAMSUNG provided the following information to the question:

  1. Connect the USB cable to the camcorder and the PC.
  2. Power On the Camcorder and put in REC Mode. Windows will detect the device. (If you are using a DuoCam, you must use the Camcorder side.)
  3. Launch Messenger or other webcam software.
  4. If using Messenger, click on the Webcam Button in the message pane of the "contact" with whom you wish to share video. Read the agreement and click OK.
  5. Your streaming video will begin.
I hope this helps. Regards,

Unable to use camcorder's built-in microphone with PC


I believe it can. I have been reading the user manual to the device and have read chapter 10. PC Cam Mode.

Currently, I'm charging the battery. And once that's done, I'll be testing it out for that purpose.

I'll give you the results once that's done. Stay tuned.

Nikon Coolpix P2 digital camera, can i use it as webcam?if yes please write me how can i d it, do i need any software for it.write me email on hellosajjad@gmail.com


We get this question alot. Not very many digital still cameras can actually be used as a webcam. This is mostly due to the lack of drivers for it. [url=http://esupport.sony.com/perl/tutorial-display.pl?tut_id=380&mdl=DSCS80]SONY does have a tutorial for using some of their models as a webcam[/url], but my question is, with focusing issues, why would you?

But for now, I don't think so. Better to try getting your camcorder to perform that function.

Or pick up the Creative's LiveCam Optica AF webcam.
Sensor: 2 megapixel sensor
Lens: High quality precision lens
Microphone: Built-in adaptive array microphones
Highest Still Image Resolution: 8 megapixels 3200 x 2400
Highest Video Resolution: 1600 x 1200
Focus: Auto
Interface: High-Speed USB 2.0 (bkwd compatible with USB 1.1)

$129.99

This will perform many of the functions you want in a webcam from a still camera and is designed as such.

The A520 (and I guess all Powershot cameras with RemoteShooting capability) can be used as a webcam. You only need a screen capture software, like Camtasia Recorder from the Camtasia Studio and Canon's own software, Camerawindow -> Remote shooting. You only need to start these programs, enable the Liveoutput option in the Camtasia Recorder, place the capture frame over the Remoteshooting window and start recording.
