1. see recent posts concerning cam splitters.

2. Maybe you could use TimerShot (a free MS powerToy) and load the snapshots
to a shared directory?

You probably need to use something like the below free webcam
splitter application.

Why don't you turn your firewall off (I guess you don't have one which
shows/blocks outgoing connections, otherwise it would have been notified
you) and see the traffic moving.
Of course under the umbrella of looking for updates which you can't even
turn off in between the program.
This piece lives of adware.

"Adware" is software that shows advertising. Whatever else it may be if it
does not show advertisements on the screen then it is not "adware". It
might be spyware or simply sloppy programming, but if it doesn't show you
ads then it's not "adware".
