I was trying using yahoo messenger with my web cam. My question is do i need any special software or camera so that i can see every thing on the screen what ever i type on it. Thanks.

Do I understand you are trying to take a picture of your screen with a webcam?

Are you showing your webcam a picture of the webcam's picture? If you do this, you will get a feedback loop and see only bright light..

Are you are trying to record something from your computer screen? Then you require software that records what your actions on the screen and saves the result.

For example AVS Video Editor 6.0 has a Screen Capture function. You can download this software for free.

You need screen recording software - I like CamStudio because it's open source. Once you have captured your screen activity as a movie, you can use video editing software to edit it, add voice-overs etc. to make your final training material.. Good luck !!

Please explain why you would want to read your screen with a webcam? A web cam is normally used to to view something to be transmitted to a computer...

With screen capture software you record something on the screen and view this with software such as RealPlayer, Windows Media Reader, VLC Media Player and so on.

What i meant was that can i use my webcam to display my computer screen like whats currently on it? I know that you can't unless you have a program? Does anyone know what I'm talking about and give me a program to show my screen on the webcam while someone is able to view it and read every thing easily

Use the software and send the file off... ScreenCapture-1.flv

Do you want to share your screen with someone else and show them what you are doing while you are both online? If that is the case, use NetMeeting (Microsoft) or GoToMeeting (Cytrix).. Check out Google Plus' "hangout" feature

Your webcam doesn't have a high enough resolution to read what is on the screen.  The fact that all you see is a bright light means it doesn't have a very good automatic exposure circuit.  If all you're trying to do is create a tutorial of something you are doing on the computer, stick with a software program like Camstudio.  It will create a sharper video and you won't have exposure problems.

If you want to have one person to see what you are doing on your comnputer, you can use software such as Logmein or TeamViewer. But this works one on one...

But, if you want to publish something you are doing on you computer to a site such as YouTube, then consider using the screen capture software we mentioned above.

If you really want to record what is on the screen while you are working on it, then consider using a camcorder. You can set it up on a tripod, zoom the camcorder over your shoulder on to your computer monitor and copy the resulting recording to your computer...

Webcams are NOT used for screen capture, in fact I don't think it is technically possible to do this sence the resolution is not high enough.

Here is another possibility to accomplish this: VH Screen Capture Driver: Stream your desktop via webcam (even if you don’t have an actual webcam)

You can do it with an IP webcam that has megapixel resolution, such as Arecont Vision or Axis, but that's overkill in spending for a simpler solution.
