I read a few posts showing how one can use a camocorder as a webcam. I thought its a great idea as I have a HD camcorder so I dont have to use a crappy quality webcam.

However, on connecting it to the PC found that the computer doesnt recognize it as a webcam only as a storage device. On checking with Sony, they told that USB streaming is not possible in Hard disk based camcorders and they would output only through AV cables or HDMI.

My laptop has a firewire port and a VGA port so is there some way I can still use the camocorder as a webcam?
