use an iSight to show what's happening outside?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Here's what I'd like to do. I have an original iSight and would like to use it to show me what's going on outside my window. I work at home and have my blinds drawn shut to keep out all the bright light (saves my eyes). However, I'm wondering if I couldn't use my iSight to show (on my desktop) what's going on outside. I know I could open an application like iChat and use the video preview window, but is there some specialty software for this purpose? I have Periscope, but that's only for capturing stills. And I have no need to save video; just watch :-)


Anyone heard of something like this? It would be even better to use this streaming video as a desktop background for my second monitor!
