Kennel Cam – Megabyte

That’s right!  Now Megabyte can be seen all day long on this fun thing called the Internet! She’s going to be famous! OK, maybe not.  I picked up a Logitech Quickcam STX from Best Buy last night because I had $25 in reward zone coupons (love that program!).  They were out of the Microsoft camera that I wanted, so I thought I would try this.  The program I am using is called WebCam XP and it does a live stream, has quite a few config options and can use more than one camera!  I’ve got a TV Tuner card in the PC and a camcorder @ home that I am going to try out with it as well.  The software I’m using supports up to 8 cameras, and you can have all 8 feeding at the same time.  Pretty nifty.  Would like to get a camera angle inside her kennel and maybe one aiming outside towards the driveway or front door.

    Is the camera currently off? I’m getting a “cannot connect to server” error. Seems like cool stuff. Let me know how it all works out.

    Sorry. Yes, the Kennel Kam is only online during the day…because thats when Meg is in her room. The rest of the time she is out with us.

    Tried to see Megabyte…she rarely seems to move…but I read notes about books, blown tires, hand bruising concrete…love, mom
