Cam2Web – Quick and easy Webcam setup for your Mac
Chances are if you have a new consumer Mac it has a built-in iSight camera, just waiting to be used. If you’ve ever thought about setting up a webcam but figured it would be too difficult, fear not, because it doesn’t get any easier than this. Cam2Web is a tiny no frills app that is so simple you can’t possibly go wrong in the getting it to work. All you’ll need is a Mac with an iSight camera, and FTP access to a server that you can upload to. No really, that’s it.
Setup is beyond simple, it is literally this easy:
- Launch Cam2Web
- Adjust FTP settings
- Click “Start Uploading”
- Load the specified URL
Now you can broadcast whatever to the world! If you want a live update effect, simply embed the specified JPG file into an html document with some basic refresh code.
