  • Just a question many of you may know: I got one of the cables broken during my noob manipulation of the webcam and now I'm trying to find USB connectors to the Webcam board itself as the one shown in 2:22. Can these cables/components be acquired by themselves in electronic shops and so on? The point is that I made some searches using words like "USB internal connectors", "motherboard USB connectors" and others but I guess that i'm not finding the appropiate keywords since the products I'm finding cannot be attached to that type of plugs.

  • I can see TI's busting into old laptops trying to make this stuff right now. I can tell you this is a target individual there is nothing no camera system nothing can stop the system for breaking into your house and changing the dates on your camera settings and also bleeping out when they were in and when they were out for some reason I don't know if it's from nanotechnology they can see every single solitary thing that you do everything. So if you try to put out a camera they know how to bleep it or something when they come in the house and change it I don't know how they do this I'd be fascinated if someone that is a tech person could tell us that would be awesome so I could tell our groups how they're doing this

I then run " Any desk " which I have set on my tower and to my shop laptop ( also loaded with "Any Desk" I can operate the Tower from from shop and record everything in my house onto a 3 TB HDD at my shop. I have had this for almost 4 years and it works great. Any Desk has Password lock outs.

  • Hi Matt, i tried this on a crystal eye webcam from a old Asus Aspire 5930 (working PC but nicked it out as i don't use webcam on laptop). Connected it pr your instructions after finding what cable goes where (simple to do with a working Laptop). i do get power into the camera, but it's not detected at all when i plug it into a USB port. This camera are suppose to be a 720p so pretty good, thus i waned to reuse it. Any suggestions what i can try? Feel free to send me a private msg

  • A raspberry pi network is really simple to set up, and the Pi 0W is wifi enabled, can be run from any usb charger, and is only $10 USD. So you can set up a new camera for less than 20 bucks, and you don't have to run usb cables all over the place.

  • I have a couple old laptops that I stripped down to components because they are dead. Thought I'd try making 2 security cameras as show in your video. When I looked at the cameras the don't have the multiple wires that run through a tape to attach to the motherboard. One is a 3 or 4 year old dell and another is an old old Sony Vaio. Each camera sports only 2 wires. The Vaio cameras wires join the wires for the display an that that goes into a clip on what I assume it the motherboard. What can I do to make these into a security cameras? Thanks!
