What Is a WebCam??
The answer is quite simple: a Web page which hosts images or even live
video streams served by a digital Camera attached to a computer. Thus,
The WebCam technology has now become quite popular since WebCams
first hit the World Wide Web. In the past, only a few had the technology
and the resources to keep a camera refreshing an image 24 hours a day and
face up to the high costs and other serious problems. Now, for less than
$100 and an Internet dial-up connection, you can set up your own camera
on the Internet.
If you surf the Web, you'll discover thousands of different places and
people that have setup a WebCam for online viewing. You'll
find cameras pointing
to beaches, gardens, offices, parking lots, bedrooms; some of them will
be user-controllable, some of them won't; some of them will be black and
white, some will be in color; some slow, some fast.
Leaving fun aside, you can also use this (relative) new technology for
remote surveillance systems, monitoring events/places and broadcasting
