I just can't get my JVC camcorder to work with the programms via firewire. The programms detect the camcorder but they do not show the image. I was wonderin if there's a way to still be able to get it to work, perhaps with firewire, otherwise what would i have to do else?

the JVC may not really be suitable for this type of recording, a webcam maybe more suitable,
 however you need a client to connect it to.
 try using it through Windows Live

I am trying to use my DV, in this case my GZ-HD6 video camera as a webcam. Therefore those websites were not useful for me.

Is the camera set to video mode? If it's on playback, transfer or photo it won't work. What programs are you trying to use? Have you tried alternative programs to test the camera? You may try something like Skype to see if it works in there; if so, then you've got a problem with your program. If not, it's likely a camera issue.
