Running a live webcam at my home

Running a live webcam at my home

Running a live webcam at my home

(OP)
I have two dogs, and am fascinated as to what they do when I am out.

I have a MacBookPro and two USB webcams - how difficult might it be for me to set those up and be able to watch my goggies from work?

And any suggestions as to exactly how I go about it?

Thanks.

RE: Running a live webcam at my home

you could try Quicktime Broadcaster.
It is free from apple, but only allows 1 connection.   http://www.apple.com/quicktime/broadcaster/

A 2nd option that i would also look at it Darwin Streaming Server, also free.   http://dss.macosforge.org/

If you are good with a slideshow type webcam instead of true video, look at Gawker   http://gawker.sourceforge.net/Information.html

Depending on the webcam and the software with it, you may also like EvoCam, not free, but a good program.    http://www.evological.com/evocam.html


here are many other webcam apps.

Do you want to catch them playing poker?

Biglebowskis Razor - with all things being equal if you still can't find the answer have a shave and go down the pub.

Nice one; does the purple-y accolade (thanks!) indicate the method by which your iDevice is now a canine-minder?
