    I was wondering if there is any way I could use my Sony DSR-PD150P camcorder as a webcam. Regular webcams is connected with USB but I can't see why firewire wouldn't work.

    The camcorder has a mode which let me take pics or shoot movies with less quality making it possible to use a memory stick. I was thinking about using this mode when running it as a webcam if possible as I'm sick & tired of my USB logitech quickcam and it's 30 pics/second in low quality. Now this cams lower quality mode isn't top of the line either but it's way better than the USB cam.. Any help on this would be appriciated.

    Software used:
    Win XP Pro
    Trillian or newest MSN messenger 6.1 (depending on what app allows the use of this cam)

    Heres some pics, not to bad considering it's a video cam not a real photo cam: (there is a HUGE difference in quality)

    Fixed now! Using MSN 6.1 though since the Trillian software won't support it.
