Want to set up your own webcam?
It's easy! Here's what you need:
- A digital camera that can be controlled by your PC (I use the
Intel PC Camera - read my review
at Epinions). You can also use a video camera and a frame grabber, but that's more
- A web site with FTP access. I rent space at
Web66 and recommend them highly. You can get a personal web site
for less than $11 per month. If you want your own domain name (like www.RaviB.com),
you'll first need to register a domain with the Internic.
- A program to capture and upload images at regular intervals. I
use Bill Oatman's SpyCam. It's a great
piece of shareware, well worth the $15 registration fee the author requests. If you end up using
it, please register!
