sure can, you watch em just like you browse the web. All you need to do is find the url (site) that that webcam is set up on. Most have a refresh rate of 60 sec. some will do better, but because of the high bandwidth most do not set there cam on streaming vid. (streaming video will take out a dsl site). If you wish to watch say video of the grankids (ifn your a grand) all you should have to do is point your browser to the ip address of the transmitting system. Or you can use netmeeting and set up a direct vid chat.
