I researched on Google if the Flip HD could be used as a webcam and in most cases, the answer was no. But i came across one person who said it could be used if you purchased the easycap usb video capture stick. These are available for $17 on trademe: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Electronics-photography/DVD-players-VCRs/Other/auction-272053074.htm


My question is, has anyone tried this? It looks like it will work...

It seems a bit pointless using a cheap A/V USB device and connecting the TV out from the Flip to use as a webcam. You're not going to get a HD signal from it, you may as well just buy a cheap webcam that will do the same thing.

This seems rather unlikely to work. I just tried pluging in the composite output from the Flip MinoHD to my screen, and as soon as you do that the Flip switches to playback mode. It will not show the live picture when plugged in, composite nor USB.
