How to turn computer monitor into mirror?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Michael L., Sep 16, 2008.

  1. hi. does anyone know if it's possible to use a background that would essentially turn my computer monitor into a mirror? scanning a mirror doesn't work.

    Webcam and serious video cards?
  4. I believe FLV media player has an option that allows you to set streaming or pre recorded video feeds as your background.

    Try that first. You may have to download a pdf. how too or just look it up online, but I know it can be done with FLV.

    If you set up a mirror behind youself as well, you'll get that cool tunnel-effect. I would lose my mind if I had to look at myself all day long.

    i've never heard of such a thing.
  7. I think that went of most of your heads... :( I've been laughing for the last half hour after reading this on another forum I frequent. Think about it... scanning a mirror?

    I'm done having fun now. Carry on.

    Actually, I know a customer of mine who has a mirror on his wall that is also a TV. I'm not sure how it works, but it's freakin cool!

    So you decided to take someone else's stupidity off of another forum and post it on this forum as if you were asking the question for yourself? If it was supposed to be a joke then it was poorly executed and only served to make you look like you have no idea what you're doing.. :ninja:

    Nice to start the day with a good joke! :)

    Now for some serious advice: The best way to turn your monitor into a mirror is to press the power button when it is on.
