Webcam Automatic Image Upload

Webcam Automatic Image Upload: I want to have my webcam picture automatically uploaded to my server every once in a while and displayed on my website because I'm narcissistic to provide visitors with somewhat interactive content. [More Inside]

I'm looking for something free that will do that for me, but lately free stuff has been hard to find through the google junk I get. Any help from you Axewielders?

Assuming you are using Windows, Webcam XP is excellent. It's not free, but it's cheap and very good.

I am a fan of SpyCam. It's nice, simple and cheap.

Webcam Timershot from the Microsoft XP powertoys is free and simple. You'll have to setup a script to do the upload.

Dorgem will automatically take pictures, upload. It's free and open source.

Cam2Web is free and worked for me a while ago, with a little extra scripting to do what I wanted (old, and slightly odd web site, but works fine). The XP Webcam Timershot I found sucked up a lot system resources, for some reason. I was surprised when I last looked that there wasn't more free stuff. On preview Dorgem looks pretty good.
