I had the same problem, and from what I've found out so far, there is no any existing solution for that. If you can do programming, you can download SDK from Canon website and make it yourself, or just wait until someone does it. With the existing software the easiest way to do that probably would be to use the RemoteControl timer feature and use some other program to upload pics to your webpage once in a while.

If by chance you have video-in on your PC, you can use the supplied video/audio out cable from your camera to the inputs on your PC's graphics card or in my case the breakout box that comes with the ATI All in Wonder 9000 Pro. Just remember to set your camera not to time out too fast.

Yes, I am having the same problem too, trying to use my Kodak CX6230 for a webcam.. Here is my problem.. Hopefully you or anyone else might be able to help.

I just got a new Kodak CX6230 and it works perfectly as a webcam when it's plugged into my ATI All in Wonder card, the only problem is (big problem) that I cannot find a way so far to disable the auto power saver thingy which shuts the screen off after 60 seconds even if the camera is plugged into the AC Adaptor...

Any help would really be appreciate.. Please Email me.
I used to have an old Kodak DC220 and it had the same problem, but that camera used something called "script" and I found one which after installed, it had the option to disable the power saver feature which shuts off the LCD or "Video Out" which used to work so well for Webcam purposes.
