The Fuji S5000 performs very well as a webcam

To be honest, it's a waste of a good camera and it's not recommended. CCD digicams tend to heat up over time causing hot pixels that can eventually become stuck pixels which will ruin your photos!!!

Instead, just buy a $20-$30 dedicated CMOS webcam. Not only better, but it's a lot easier to operate.
