    I've just been playing around with MySQL and PHP and have made (admitedly, based on someone else's original code) a webcam portal that people can use, just click here and you can add your own name/cam/url.

    This is just a test to see how it works out, but will probably stay as I like the idea :)

    Well, not many people have WebCam's and those who do, not all know how to setup an online pic etc.

    Well, get yer cam, plug it in, load drivers... All standard stuff.
    Now comes the software you use, this is of course a personal choice thing. Personally I use ConquerCam, Once you've got that installed its all pretty simple, theres setup wizards to guide you through adding an FTP address etc.

    You actually need to post a direct image to the picture/jpeg.

    I've edited the database, it now works :)
