When you open up the ustream broadcast console, it will ask for permission to use the video and audio feeds. Click "allow." Since you won't have a video feed, it will automatically just use the audio feed only. So, in short, no, you don't need a webcam. For an example, you can check out

My stream is currently using a spare Pro-2052, but it will be upgraded to a BCT-15 when I upgrade my mobile setup. When that happens, I will be using the same setup for the audio feed, but I will be using bcTool's remote control feature, using something like WebcamMax ( to capture the remote control screen to show listeners what talkgroup is currently broadcasting. When using WebcamMax, ustream will recognize it as a "camera." But in no way is it necessary to use a webcam in order to broadcast on ustream.
I checked out Ustream and got it working, pretty neat if you ask me. Now all I got to do is figure out the remote control feature that you talked about using BCTool's remote captue feature. My stream is at and I embedded it on my site at another way to do it is using ProScan which is a nice program and it has the Server and Client setup system but when I tried it, it was choppy but it still works..And just using the audio at Ustream I can still use my webcam for something else but I couldn't get my account setup without a camera but once you get it going you can shut the video off and if you want to add video you can later on. I am using a BCT-15 on it now but any scanner with a headphone jack would work..I also downloaded and tried WebcamMax but like the software that comes with the Logitech Pro 9000 webcam better, which is a very nice webcam, but maybe you could use either one..Cheers..Keithmj
