    USB Webcam

    I have a rear-view webcam hooked up. I know there must be a way to see it. Who knows how?

    i think what you need to look into is if there is a way to interface the webcam with a computer. is this webcam stock for the vehicle or is it something you modified? if it is a webcam, they simply video4linux is your best bet. it worked great for any webcams I modified (including one out of a laptop).

    It's a Dynex USB webcam.. not sure of the model number right now. I'll try that and post an update.
