I have camera from Panosonic LUMIX. The model is DMC-TZ25. It has a HDMI port too. I want to use it as a webcam. I've a tripod too. The ports in the camera are a HDMI port, a charging port(micro USB type. Please tell me how can I use it as a Webcam? But please note that I don't want to buy or use a Capture card.
Thanks in advance.

That's where the plan falls apart, I believe.

The USB port is likely charging only, meaning no video signal out from there..... and your PC won't have a way to receive an HDMI input (only 'out'). You need some way to capture the HDMI from the camera on your PC..... which will necessitate a capture device, as far as I know.
