Are digiatal cameras able to act as webcams?
Question by Mr Burns /

Besides the webcam, can all digital cameras be used as a webcam? I have an older Polaroid that does work nicely, and I wondered if other digital cameras could work as well.

Running Linux Mint 13 and Google Hangout. Polaroid is picked up. But not when I’m running Windows XP.

Any input?

Thanks!
