Hi Dorothy, yes it is very possible. Normally we call it sharing your computer through skype. With this feature you can share what you are seeing on your computer for her to see, may it partially or fully. But it just through viewing not remote controlling. All you need to do is call your friend through skype and choose share on the options provided once you two are connected.

If you want to stream a video over Skype, you can do it with ManyCam. First, download the latest free version of ManyCam and install it. It supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. It requires Intel Core i3 or faster processor and 2 GB RAM. Once installed, start ManyCam and select “Sources” tab. Click “Movies” on the left pane and select a video to play.

Apply the necessary adjustments to the video you want to stream. Once you are finished setting the video, start Skype then go to “Tools” and then “Options.” On the left pane, select “Video settings” then from the “Select webcam” dropdown list, select “ManyCam” from the list and then click “Save.” Now, make a video call on Skype. When the person views your webcam, he will see the video playing.

And that’s it. Now, every time you start Skype, ManyCam will start automatically.
