I would like to be able to activate and see images from my home webcam when I am not at home.
I can connect to the computer with the webcam over the Internet using Live Mesh, so I can remotely see whatever the desktop is displaying. It would be sufficient for me to display images from the webcam on my home desktop.
Another solution that could worked is exposing this as a service. However, that would have to account for dynamic IP addresses and/or dynamic DNS, because I don't have a static IP at home.
One solution I'm using right now goes through Windows Live Messenger, but that is overkill just for displaying a webcam image.
