I need streaming webcam software that supports multiple inputs and will actually stream.

So far I have tried: Coffee Cup, TinCam, VisionGS, webcam XP, and willing webcam, as well as using ustream.tv. Oh and Yawcam and one that started with a D but I can't find it now.

Out of all of those, I could not find one that would stream the video from 2 cams.

Yawcam worked great for the first cam for me - but only half of the people who looked saw it actually refreshing - using JS or the Java Applet.

ustream.tv was great but only one cam at a time.

The rest just failed monumentally. Either no image showed, I couldn't even input the sources, or they just did not work.

I don't get why this is so hard. I am not technologically impaired. I have been trying since 2 and it is now 11:30 and I don't have my cams up.

Help :(

I've used Active WebCam before with great success. It's not free, but it works.

Thank you! At this point I am willing to pay and it's only $30!
I wasn't even trying to get a free one just something that would WORK.
I got 5 great webcams with lights on them for $45 so $30 more is fine!

Tried it, works great with 1 cam so far. The other one had to be returned, waiting on 3 more.

Thanks again.
