The problem with the desktop is that the energy use is usually like leaving on a few 100 Watt light bulbs. It's not that great an idea but before we go further, this has been done and done and done so often that it's now a frequently asked question.
I'm going to skip mentioning any PC software here and note Ustream. That's it.
But why not an web connected camera with tilt and pan? The last one I got was well under 99 bucks.
I have a laptop and a desktop and would like to view my bedroom at anytime when I am gone using a webcam and connecting it to my desktop stationary computer.
What steps can I take to have a webcam connected and have it live streaming to a site where I can access it when Im not home?
