We recommend downloading Kolban's Webcam32 or other webcam software and using it with your camera. This software is available for free use for an hour by hour basis (only and hour at a time) or indefinitely if you purchase the full version. The software that came with your camera may provide the same functionality. You need to be able to take the camera output and stream it to a JPG file on your website. It is this JPG file we will use to put your image on the virtual screen, and update it every few seconds.
