Hack To Transform Android Phone Camera Into A WebCam For Computer

Want to video chat with your friend over your computer but don’t have a webcam? No worries. DroidCam is a new application on the Android market that will let you easily turn your Android phone into a webcam for your computer. The application connects the camera on your Android phone to your computer using a desktop client that needs to be installed. Once done, the phone camera can seamlessly function as a webcam and can be used with a number of third party chat applications including MSN, Skype, etc.

What’s interesting is that DroidCam connects wirelessly over Wi-Fi and so there is no cable-hassle involved. Do note though that the application is currently compatible with only a Windows or Linux computer. If you are a Mac user, then you are out of luck at the moment.
