    I have a Kodak LS443. How can I set it up to use as a webcam for Netmeeting,
    MSN Messenger, etc?
    Thanks

    It'll only work if it provides a VFW (Video For Windows) device driver. If
    so then both programs should simply "see" and be able to use the camera.

    However, it seems a lot of video "devices" use the "newer" WDM (Windows
    Digital Media) interface which neither program supports (including the new
    Messenger 6).

    This means my cheap Creative Webcam and my Fuji S602 work (not withstanding
    the Fuji's lack of brightness/contrast control in the drive which makes it
    next to useless for this purpose) but a camcorder hooked up to my Radeon
    64DDR Vivo video card won't (which would be by far the best option with it's
    auto focus etc. abilities).
