Can anyone direct me to a site that lists what is needed to set up a Web cam (always on cam). I saw some sites on the Video Camera forum. Like the Kings Ranch cam and the Africam. Is this a very expensive proposition?
Actually it may be as easy as buying a digital camera. It doesn't even need to be a camcorder, just a regular digital camera. There are shareware programs for taking webcam shots that work quite well that you can find on shareware.com or download.com. A camera I have used that is relatively cheap is one by AFGA that runs about $99. I bought mine at Kmart, so you might want to start there. The hookup is usually USB, so be sure you have that type of hookup. By the way, I like putting webcams on my desktop at work with nature shots. If you get it up and going, let me know the address.
Then all you need is a hosting site like geocities.
I have a webcam at home, so I can watch my children play while I am at work. This fall, I am going to set up a webcam overlooking our driveway where I hunt. Deer are always crossing the driveway (it's 7/10 of a mile long). Hopefully I will be able to catch something crossing.
