    Does anyone know of a driver that lets me use my video capture card as a webcam? I would love to be able to use my video capture card with Windows Messenger or something equivelent , but I don't know how to :(

    I used to do it all the with my hauppage(sp?) card. You just need to choose it as your webcam in the program's set up.

    If it is a specific driver that is needed for your card to do this, you'll get further if you actually post what kind of card you are using.

    I'm using a Theatrix (ATI) 550 Pro... I don't think it should matter though. Did you use Windows Messenger or MSN Messenger to select a capture card as a webcam? I'm using Windows Messenger right now..
