    Default camcorder as webcam, help

    I have a Sony 8mm camcorder (not digital) and i want to use it as my web cam, nothing more. I have an old Dazzle DVC80 that i used for this with my old Wins98 system but it isnt compatible with XP.
    What is the easiest and cheapest way to do this?

    Well, I reckon that you need a card with an analogue video in to digitise the signal, some tv cards can do this - sort of, you might end up spending more than a web cam costs and getting a worse result...

    I would buy a webcam if I were you
