Make the computer think that a vb program is a webcam, possible?

Hi,

I was trying to to make a program that makes the computer think thte program is a webcam. Is it possible? If so, how to do that?

This is what I want:
A program in which you can load small movies
The movie is supposed to load in another screen, this screen has to be the "picture" of the webcam.
This screen is not supposed to be fullscreen, but about 320 × 240 I think (maybe smaller)

I hope you will understand this, I'm Dutch and I don't really know exactly how to say this.
Thanks in advance!

I'm not the best programmer, but I know VB quite well, I just don't know where to start with the 'making the computer think it's a webcam'-part.

What I understand is that you just want to show small movies using webcam but the same should be executed thru VB.

I my understanding is not clear then may be you need to send some more information on this.

No, what I want is the same as my TV Card does actually...

My computer recognizes my TV Card in the computer as a webcam.
I can show a tv-channel in MSN because my pc thinks it's a webcam.
That's what I want, that my computer recognizes my program as a webcam.

So what I need is a program to load movies in... well, that's already done.
But now the computer has to recognize the movieplayer window as a webcam.

I hope I made myself clear now :-D
