SD1100 as a Web Cam Controlled by USB

I would like to use my SD1100 as a webcam. I would like the camera to be able to recognized using conventional 3rd party webcam software.....  I want to create interval shots each hour and post them on a website.

Is this possible?

Could this be done with a different Canon model?

well, there are cameras that can use the canon sdk, and programs like psremote *might* work. ( PSRemote - Canon PowerShot Remote Capture Camera Software )

Cam4You Remote does more. It'll even let you stream the live-view EVF video from your camera to a web-server. But it doesn't list the SD1100, maybe you can contact the author to add it. Or, as considered, get a supported camera.
