What webcam security software do you use?

    I currently use Periscope in Snow Leopard but it's unsupported in Lion. I may be buying a new MBP in the coming weeks / months and in which case I'll need an alternative.

    I need something that will detect movement, take a picture and / or a movie and email it. What would be even better would be some sort of ability to set up streaming but opening ports in my firewall is all a bit mystifying / dodgy sounding.

    Thanks for any advice.

    OK, thanks for the advice....Checked it out and it looks like it'll do the job.

    Anybody else got any suggestions?

    is this to stop people opening your webcam and seeing what you are up to?

    No, you leave it running on the computer when you go out, and motion triggers the camera to take a picture or record a movie, which the software then emails to you. A variant is software that allows you to stream the webcam feed so that it can be seen with a phone when you're out and about.

    It's basically intended to catch burglars and such.
