No, it cannot. Shame really!

Digital cameras, webcams, usb memory sticks have what is know as a USB DEVICE interface. The thing it plugs into, the PC, has a USB HOST interface.

The electronics required to make a device interface are reasonably simple; A host is much more complicated.

Regards,

Mike

Think you need an IP camera such as Panasonic BLC101 or whatever

-- wifi between camera and a wifi router, then you log into it on the web. Point being that the camera has its own built-in server.
