    I don't really know where this is meant to go, so I'll ask here first.

    Basically if you have a conventional camera attached to your PC using some form of TV card can it be setup to work like a webcam?

    And is there such a thing as SCART in on a PCI Card? (I'm guessing no, but I'm happy to be proved wrong).

    Looking at setting up a live feed with an underwater camera and so far that's the biggest grey area of it.

    Thanks in advance & Mods, please move to a good home if in the wrong place.

    :)

    SCART I haven't seen but there are plenty of video capture cards out there with s-video and/or composite so you can capture the video output of just about every video camera out there.

    Oh ok - do you know anything about using a normal camera in the same way that one does a webcam? Is there software to allow you to do it?

    Turns out the camera has normal Coax out so that's a bonus.

    I have a normal Mini DV Camcorder and I can use it as a web cam.
