    Connecting USB camera to 2 computers

    Does anyone know of some way or something I could use to connect a USB camera to two computers such that each I could access it from either computer?

    I need to be able to access the camera from both computers at teh same time, so a switch box wont work.

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Use VNC from the 2nd computer perhaps?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
