Having problems with your Olympus FE-240 Digital Camera ?

Camera into a web-cam

\015 Hey I've got an Olympus FE-240. Its there a way I could get it to stream as a webcam?\015

Answers :

If your camera has a video and audio output like many of these types of small digital cameras, you can get a video capture card for your computer. Install the software and drivers for the capture card. Then you feed the camera to the capture card using the proper connection cables. The MSM, Yahoo, and most of the other conferencing softwares should be able to see the capture card as a video and audio source.
\015\012For the camera, you will need the AC adabtor. The camera's internal batteries are going to run down very quickly when using the camera in the video mode.
\015\012You may find the video content very large in data bandwidth if you don't have the means to compress the audio and video. Using the full resolution without compression may cause some problems and large amounts of streaming bandwidth. If the other users are on dialup, or if you are on dialup, this will be a big problem.
\015\012My preference would be to get a good Webcam that can work on the USB port. There will be no bandwidth compression problems, and it was designed for this type of job.
