Is it possible to connected a Webcam to two computers at the same time?
The webcam wouldn't be used by both at the same time.
What I'm trying to do is setup a webcam to take some photos, but if my PC is rebooted, the laptop that it's connected to would continue to take photos, then when my PC comes back up it would take over again.
Just not sure how I would go about plugging it into two computers at the same time. Is there a USB splitter of some sort that can be plugged into two computers to a single USB port I can plug the webcam into?
Edit: In response to @QuickSilver
USB Hub provides a single host to have multiple principles connected. I need a single principle connected to multiple hosts.
This device is more what I'm looking for, but I want it requires intervention in order to switch the host device.
This may actually solve what I want to do if I can programmatically switch the device. If the laptop notices the primarily PC is not accessible then it will take control, and when the primary PC is available it will re-take control.
