    I know its not a home theater hardware question, but I thought someone here might know how to do it. Anybody?

    My Olympus C4040 and a friends Canon G2 will take short video clips with sound, but there is no function for using the camera as a webcam. Any ideas?

    no way unless you use the video out and a video capture device such as some ATI video cards.

    or just buy a cheap webcam, it'd be much simpler and you wouldn't be wasting such a great piece of hardware on such a low-level task.
