a live webcam stream would require your PC (must be connected to broadband) to act as a server and thus be on and connected all the time.

Then, you can if you have static IP just install the webcam streaming software which will pass an image to the website via FTP every few seconds.

If you dont have static IP, then you need Dynamic DNS service like click here

Let us know and we will be able to help further!

I am on AOL and am also looking to host a webcam. I think this means I dont have a static IP. I have downloaded the Dynamic DNS service, where do I go from here?
