Default Use EOS computer software to use XSI as webcam?

I've recently been chatting on a webcam chat for Rover's Morning Glory, which is a local radio show (only saying this so I don't sound like a weirdo, haha).

I was wondering, I don't have a web cam, but I know with the EOS software you can see it live on the computer, so I figured this might be able to be done and started searching..

On instructables.com I've found a how-to showing how to do it but the sites blocked at work for the program, so wondering if anyone knows if this will work, or any other way to make it work?

Here is the link:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Use-...ng-the-webcam/

Didn't know if this was best place to post this, or in the software section, so if any mods need to move it, feel free to.

PS: Never used the EOS software though I've had my camera for 6 months or so. Gotta install that first.

Buy a webcam for $ 9.90 and do not break your Canon.
Only little boys do that.

lol...

I only plan on using it while I work on my truck so a few people can see what I'm trying to explain what I am doing and they can ask questions.. not something regularly.
