I want to use my camcorder as webcam. Answered

Hey Everybuddy!!!   I have an everio JVC HDD camcorder. The model is GZ-MG330RU. It connects to the pc via usb. I want to use it as a webcam. But it should connect to the pc via usb. I mean the connection type for the webcam must always be usb. I dont want to convert it to someother type.


If the camera won't do it anyway, the most you will achieve is to break it trying.


Yep, just checked - this doesn't have webcam out. It's often found on stills cameras though, ironically...

If the camera doesn't support webcam mode, then no, without getting it to output video to a video capture device, it's not gonna happen.

Most video cameras do not support webcam mode, the usb cable is just for file transfer.
