Some chances are there depending on model but the cost involved will probably be around same as buying a new cheap usb webcam so not worth it in my opinion.

Cost involved in buying hardware which might be needed to convert a cctv to webcam. Why not try to use a phone camera as webcam?

Well with DroidCam there was no audio and with IP Cam no video! AFAICT all the drivers were properly installed.

Try sending an email with detailed description of the issue to droidcam author(email listed on playstore).

As I said earlier, very difficult & most likely not worth it.
