    Is it possible to stream an AVI ("any" video) file just like a stream of a
    webcam? My camera is dead and I'll participate on a video chat. I need
    to send a video file just like a real webcam-captured image.

    If this is not the right place to ask this question then please guide me where to post this?

    Thanks you and Regards

    This might not be the right place to ask this question but luckily I know the answer (or at least I think I know … lol ).

    Try Fake webcam or webcam simulator. Fake webcam is free I guess. I plays video files on webcam applications like yahoo messenger etc.

    Let me know if you need further info.

    I used it long time ago and its free. Try this one.

    Fake Webcam

    Stream/play videos and movies on Yahoo, MSN, AOL, Paltalk, ICQ, Camfrog, and on all messengers instead of actual Webcam. It streams videos and movies on your messenger just like an actual Webcam. You don't need to have a Webcam for Webcamming. Enjoy pretending a teenage girl or someone you want to be. Your chat mate will never figure out that it's not a real Webcam.

    It enables you to:
    * Play pre-recorded videos without even having a physical webcam.
    * Shared your video clips with family and friends through your instant messengers.

    You can download it from
