Hey guys! I've used my camera as a webcam before, and considering it has 720p quality, it looks great and it's a pretty good option in my opinion..

Only problem was, that was a few years ago. The Firewire/iLink port on my camera has now gone faulty, the pins snapped clean in half, so I can't use Firewire anymore for any of it's uses. (transferring tape videos, webcam, etc.)

So what are my options if I still wanted to use this as a webcam?

Svideo/Composite ports are working on the camera, but I don't have them on my 6770HD Radeon, so how could I ever plug it into my computer? I wouldn't want to get a cheaper graphics card just for webcam, and I don't think I could plug an a whole other graphics card in an empty slot without my computer not POSTing, could I?
