    Yes, it is possible to use video converters such as Pinnacle RCA to USB video caputure devices to do this. When using CCTV cameras you also typically need a BNC to RCA converter, because closed circuit cameras use BNC connectors, not RCA.

    Here is outdoor wildlife camera that uses on of our S600VF12 outdoor CCTV cameras with a RCA to USB capture box and a windows PC. The video streams through uStream.


    Someone gave me a sony camera and one cable. I see I need a connector to use it as a webcam, but do I also need software? I know nothing about surveilance cameras or webcams, but I need one for an online conference.
