I’ve previously posted about my under-$50 “homemade” document camera. I recommended installing a simple program to display the webcam’s output to the screen. However, recent security “improvements” in my school district have prevented me from installing or running such software (not to mention the program I recommended, fscamview, hasn’t been updated in many years and may not be compatible with Windows 10).
As a workaround, I learned that I could create a simple webpage to display the webcam. Webcam images are not sent to my server–your browser simply displays your webcam image so you can project the image to a screen in your classroom or share the browser tab with students on Zoom, Meet, or Teams.
