My Dell laptop which uses Vista as the OP contains it's own camera. We have a few cats and one (or maybe more) have been using the kitchen floor to perform their number two duty. I am considering purchasing a wireless webcam to set up and enable me to view while at work but then I thought about the camera on my laptop. Therefore, the simple question is, is it possible to use the camera on the laptop to perform as a spycam and possibly view via internet access while at work?

Thank you

I do not think so, but others may chime in.

Well... if people can stream their webcams over the internet on websites already, I'm sure there is a way. I did something similar but I couldn't figure out a way to just stream it... I had to set up a video call over skype to be able to check it... we were trying to figure out how exactly the cereal was getting from the shelf to the floor and eaten by the cats... found out the kittens had figured out how to climb up and knock down the honey nut cheerios.
