Adding a WebCam to Roku TV

Any suggestions on how to add a webcam to a Roku TV? I have a food science teacher that would like to connect a webcam to her ceiling mounted Roku TV and attach a webcam so students can view her stovetop and countertops while working. I cannot seem to be able to find a way to successfully connect the USB webcam to the TV. Is there a live stream app I can install or other apps that would work? Other suggestions?

Found this in the Roku Channel Store:

Don't know anything about it, whether it works, whether it's been updated for current Roku operating system, etc.

You might also try IP Camera Viewer.  It didn't work for my camera, but it does seem to have a lot of options. Also, you might be able to access the camera on a laptop and connect the laptop to the monitor via an HDMI cable.

Why? All webcam related content is banned on Roku.

F0ckrooku -- How and why is this post necessary or helpful?  Roku still has two apps that allow webcam connections; one which captures images, the other which captures live streams from compatible cameras.
