    I'd like to set up a web cam connected to my old Mac mini. I just bought a new tortoise and I'd like to set up a cam that can stream 24/7 to the web so that frieds and family can check in on her, or so that I can take a peak while at work.

    The limitations are that my Mac mini is a first generation running OSX 10.5, so any programs or hardware I get will have to be compatible with that.

    Is there a program for my Mac that will stream to the web so that it can be visable to others on both iOS devices and on a web page?

    Do I need to set up a domain or anything or is there a program that will take care of all of that?

    Is this something that I would be able to accomplish by setting up a Ustream channel? I'm sorry, I'm really a noob at this. I'm going to try and pick up a webcam after work today and I'll play around with it a bit and see what I can get set up.

    Can't help you with hardware, but check out sensr.net. And Evocam.
