Can I stream my video camera?

Well basically I have a tv tuner and I can plug my video camera in, kodak zi6, and I was wondering how I can make it the camera I use for skype? or how can I stream that video live?

I have looked at splitcam, but I don't know if that is what I need, and also it doesn't support 64 bit... so i'm outta luck with trying that, and also In skype it had options to choose my tv tuner or webcam, but when I choose my tv tuner nothing happens I can't get anything to show up...

Hi! ^_^

Are you trying to use your Kodak Zi6 like a webcam? If that is your intention maybe you can do it with your cam's A/V cables connected to your TV tuner if your tuner is recognized as a video capture device.
For example, I've a Pinnacle PCTV that Windows recognizes as a video capture device and I can set it up like a webcam under Windows Live Messenger or Skype, so I can send TV images and audio to people who I'm chatting to.
Post your TV tuner's brand & model and maybe I could help you some way.
