Re: Need help with conferencing.

By all means buy the kit of you really need it.  An alternative if you have an android phone is 'droid cam' app.  You put the app on your phone, get the windows end of it on your pc and all is well.

Droid cam is free, but the free version won't do things like focus.  You can check it all works then pay about GBP 5  for the full version.  The pc end of it is free.

I normally use the camera on my laptop, I note you don't have one, but use the phone for odd things like showing the computer keyboard if I'm teaching.

If you use zoom as the conferencing app, you can download that on your phone and just add the phone as virtual 'member' of the call.  Not sure if you can do that with google meet or microsoft teams.

Your method is fine and will give you excellent quality, but there are other ways.
