Can my digital JVC camcorder be used as webcam?

I have a digital JVC camcorder, is there any way this can be hooked up as a webcam? If not, anyone any suggestions as to a reliable, inexpensive web cam?

Most Camcorders should be able to be used as webcams, I know the Sony I got has software to do this. However I brought a dedicated webcam as I found using the camcorder a pain as battery life has to be kept a eye on, you have to unplug it to use it etc. I ended up with a Creative NX Pro about £28.50 (Amazon) does the job, freeing up the camcorder. The Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000 is also recommended by lots of people for about £60.
