Investigators from the National Crime Agency found images on the computer of Stefan Rigo, 34, including ones of people involved in sexual activity, some of whom were on Skype at the time.
Rigo was arrested in November last year during an international investigation.
He has been given a 20-week suspended sentence and placed on the sex offenders' register for seven years.
Rigo targeted a variety of victims after gaining remote access to their computers' webcams.
Incriminating images on his computer were discovered after a forensic examination.
