A while ago I was given a fairly rubbish, low-spec USB camera, and it seemed that it might be useful/fun to set it up as a traditional web-visible webcam. After finding a driver on-line, I also looked for some free software to serve images and found the AbelCam WebCam Server. It has lots of features which I don’t use (yet) such as Pan-Tilt-Zoom and multi-camera support, but it does seem to do the job, and is free. Cool!
