When I go to activate the remote webcam The screen that pops up is black and says no video. I did download the WebM/VP8 DirectShow Filters v0.9.12.0 and the Ogg Codecs for Windows and installed them. I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong.

Phil,

Hit the 'Play' button on the toolbar in the Remote Webcam mode window and wait a bit.

Thnks. When we say wait a bit, how long, typically, would this be?

You're never a loser until you quit trying.

A bit here means couple of seconds, depends on your CPU and network speed. :)
