    you could use a software like pc anyware to dial into the laptop. it been years from the last time i looked at these types of software i dont know if they still show the desktop or screen of the other pc. one other way is to use a wireless ccd cam or web cam.
  2. Probably the simplest way is just to remote in to your laptop and view your webcam that way.

    I'm having no problems remote accessing you laptops webcam. I would also recommend that.

    However running a laptop just for a camera seems over kill. I would recommend a network camera.

    If you dont have an OS that will allow you to remote in then I may suggest something like this.

    https://secure.logmein.com/

    Its free and its secure. Although they really are stingy in the bandwidth so don't think you're gonna get awesome quality or resolution.
  6. But logmein can not give me webcam stream
  7. Are we talking about an infant, or do you require something with higher resolution? Because the simplest solution would be a baby monitor with video. No need to keep your laptop running, frees up your screen, far simpler, more mobile, etc etc.

    What do you mean?? I've done this very thing before. Logmein simply lets you remote into you laptop from another computer or any connected device. Accessing your webcam and remote usage are two independent actions. What don't you get? Or maybe I'm not fully understanding what you're trying to do.

    You can install Skype with two different accounts on both your desktop and laptop. Set up laptop' skype to "autoanswer with video", and here is it - from your desktop (or anywhere Skype is available) you can call your laptop, and see video and audio. You can mute laptop' volume (or desktop mike) if you don't want your voice to be heard.
