Can I use my PowerShot SX230 HS as a webcam?

I am pretty sure I can use my PowerShot SX230 HS as a webcam.  I was wondering if anyone else has attempted to use theirs or a similar model and were successful.

I wouldn't think you could.  The HDMI and composite video out appear to be just for playback of recorded clips and photos.

Generally for a webcam you would use streaming video over USB, which your camera cannot do.
