I wanted to make a Webcam LAN just like ipCam but this time through pc-pc LAN. Example, PC1 has a webcam, PC2 able to view/use PC1's webcam, PC1 and PC2 are connected via LAN.

Why I'm using this ways?

Using a messenger's webcam might be slow instead of direct connection / LAN. I want to view PC1's webcam faster or in 10/100mbps instead of internet connection's speeds.<

Any recommendation/suggestion softwares that able to do this?
