streaming video

I would like to stream video of my puppies live for people to watch them. I'm running windows xp and have a Microsoft lifecam cinema webcam. I have norton antivirus, a wireless router and a comcast modem (if that means anything)

Can anyone tell me where to start? I tried using ustream.tv but my cam wouldn't show so I'm at a loss.

Thanks for any info

What is computer? Camera? Need a little more info, there are a few ways that you could do what you are trying to do. Is it a stand alone camera or a built in (Laptop)? Again, a little more information.

Getting YOUR SYSTEM to work with ustream. I bet there is a forum just for that. Norton seems to always block such things but given the story, ustream would be my first choice.

OTHER SOLUTIONS should fail since whatever caused the ustream issue will likely cause the next thing to fail.

In closing, given the details so far I can only comment it is likely to be something ustream forums have written about many many times.

Odd.

In reply to: i looked

The problems are recurring with most folk needing some guru to come over to figure out why it failed. The only clue given in your post is Norton. So that's all that was offered and all I can do is agree.

Remember that if ustream didn't work, others shouldn't work either.
