    yes it's possible. You will need an encoder (program converting your webcam to digital video) and a streaming server (or content delivery network) which will send that video to other users.

    - Encoder: Google for flash media encoder, real producer or windows media encoder

    - Streaming server: red5 is free flash streaming server, others you have to pay for

    - What you should research is CDN (content delivery network). Some charge per traffic and enable good delivery worldwide. You just send video from your encoder to them instead to your streaming server then, and they take care of the rest (and take money for it).

    - Youtube recently announced unofficially that it will enable live streaming, so if you just need this for personal amusement you might wait for that, I think there will be a lot of services like this coming for free in the days to come.
