    I have seen alot of members here on BYC using webcams to record and broadcast their hatches. I have a webcam but have no idea what download to use with it to record my hatches. Can anyone lead me to a good one to use. Thanks.

    i am also interested in this topic will be watching closely
    from what i have read there should be a programme on a disc when you bought the webcam

    Depends on the webcam,I have one that I can plug into any computer and use it. It wont show the interface for the camera on my desktop, but it displays on the hosting sites.
    I use ustream.com, there are a few other websites out there that you can use. Most are free.

    any issues with it, I had downloaded one and my spyware, and security on the puter went crazy saying it was corupting everything.

    I used http://www.myearthcam.com

    Good news was I didn't have to download anything at all. I had it up and running within 2 minutes. (it's actually STILL going if you want to see: http://www.mycampage.com/acaptivechicken )

    Bad news: it doesn't record (at least, not that I'm aware of). Also, it shows how many total views I've had, but I have no idea how many people are currently viewing. I'd love to know that.
