I need to extend my USB webcam about 30ft. Can this be done? I did some research and found a IOGear USB 2.0 Booster Extension Cable 39ft. Has anyone used this or done this?

Thanks!

I haven't done it and it might degrade video quality some, but it should work.

If I would have been in such need of this product I would have gone for it without hesitation.
