    I had no idea how easy it would be. and I did it for $39.00

    After Bellafire Farm posted that her sister-in law got a camera and was able to upload from ustream. I thought I would give it a shot. It is CRAZY easy.

    I just bought a webcam from Walmart, and installed it on my computer, downloaded the free ustream software and presto just pushed Broadcast button and we where live. But the BEST news, if you download the app on the iphone for ustream you can get the video on your Iphone. WOOHOO
    I can no go to a movie and watch my girls on my iphone. This is awsome. I am thrilled. We will be getting the girls pen set up online soon.

    I can see how it would be easy to stream from your laptop but how about from a camera in the barn? I dont have internet out in my barn so I dont know how that would work.

    what did you do to make it work out in the barn?

    My office is about 50' from my barn so I bought a USB 50' extender and ran it along side the house to the barn. I got the extender on eBay for $19 so I guess I actually have $60 invested. But it's awsome there is about a 2-3 second delay on the computer and about a 25 second delay on iPhone. But I am ok with that.

    ah -- well that wouldnt work for me since my barn is more then 500 feet from the back door and my bedroom is on the opposite side of the house.
