Hey Kurta,

For you to convert your webcam into an IP camera, you do indeed need to use software for this. There are many kinds of software, which accomplish this task. If not interested in the example below, you can click on this link: This link gives a list of other software that you can download and the steps to install them. If for some reason, the link does not work you can search for “conversion of webcam into IP camera” on the website.

For example you can download Yawcam webcam software at this link: If this link does not work you can search for ‘Yawcam-Download’ from any of the search engines.

After you download it, follow the steps below to install it correctly:

1. Once downloaded, go to the location where it has been saved and double click on it. A pop-up window appears asking whether you would like to make changes to your laptop, thus click on the “Yes” button. This opens the software’s window.

2. From the window that appears, click on the tab Settings and choose the option “Detect Webcam”. This enables the software to search for any in-built webcams or connected webcams.

3. When done searching, the software displays a list of the webcams in your computer; select the one that you would like to convert into the IP camera and click on ‘OK’. A window is displayed containing some files that you will need to enable to ensure the working of the software; enable all these options provided and click on next.

4. Click on the tab “Settings” from the window that appears and click on the button “Connections”. This opens a new window; select on the option “What’s my URI?” from the window. This is to enable you to know the URI that the now IP camera will be using to stream videos over the internet.

5. Note down the above URI so that you can access the IP camera from another computer and be able to gain access to the videos it is sending over the internet.

6. If you wish to conceal the software, Click on the Views tab and select the option “Hide”. In case you need to gain access to this software: you can go to the start menu and on the search tab, type the software’s name after which you will be able to gain access to it from the search list provided.

7. When done, click on the finish tab at the bottom of the window and the software will be successfully installed into your computer.
