What is a cheap laptop I can get that will have good internet speed for broadcasting webcam video?

Question by Tom: What is a cheap laptop I can get that will have good internet speed for broadcasting webcam video?
I need a cheap laptop for church so we can broadcast our service on U-Stream with an external webcam, and the top priority is a low price and fast internet speed. The preferred website would be from Walmart.com.

Your internet speed will have almost nothing to do with what computer you get.

If internet is all you need it for, look at a Netbook:

Many programs let others not only watch your screen, but also let others control it, so be careful when using something like that.

Download this free software: http://www.nchsoftware.com/screen/index.html

I use it and it works well. Hope that helps. It will let others watch, but not control your computer screen.

How come I can view but cannot broadcast with my Sony VAIO in built webcam to my friends on yahoo msn?

Question by Twee: How come I can view but cannot broadcast with my Sony VAIO in built webcam to my friends on yahoo msn?
I have just purchased a Sony Vaio VGN CR13G/P and I can view my webcam but cannot broadcast it so that my friends/contacts can view. It keeps trying to connect but times out. It also keeps disabling the inbuilt camera and I have to restart my laptop to reactivate it. How can I fix this? Thank you to anyone who can help.

Answer by WyattEarp
Try this.

Go to “tools”…”Manage Add ons” and make sure everything is enabled. Also check your firewall setting to ensure the camera software has access.

Good Luck

can you view someones webcam while broadcasting your webcam to another person?

Question by EF: can you view someones webcam while broadcasting your webcam to another person?
i was broadcasting my webcam and trying to view someone else’s at the same time. the person viewing my cam said the screen went black and stopped transmitting. can you send cam and view someone else’s at the same time?

Best answer:

Answer by Mneme
I don’t see why not. I’ve watched someone’s web cam while broadcasting a web cam as well and have had only minimal problems. Granted, I was broadcasting to the same person that was broadcasting to me, so this may not answer the question you’re asking. I don’t see how it would be any different if you were trying to look at someone’s that wasn’t looking at yours, though.

How do I set a streaming webcam to monitor my house from the office?

Question by taiwanes: How do I set a streaming webcam to monitor my house from the office?
I would like to set my webcam at home for monitoring the nanny who takes care of our baby. On google there are too many “options”.

I would like to just plug my camera and watch it on a private website. Nothing fancy. I prefer a freeware option.

I will prefer answers from people who already are using a similar streaming solution. thanks!
