Can you use a video camera hooked to your computer instead of a webcam when using Skype? We're planning a video chat with family across the country and the family on this end is pretty big, so it would be nice to be able to use something with a wider view that's able to pan around, and also, it's better quality. Is there a way to hook up my camera to Skype instead of using my laptop's webcam?

I tried googling "using video camera as webcam" and came up with quite a number of positive looking give it a try! It shouldn't be too hard - I know how to do it on a Mac (pretty much just plug and play) but haven't a clue about a PC...
