Yet another reason why Android is so cool. Nicole Cozma at CNET explains how to turn your Android device into a webcam. Here’s what you need:
- An Android device (perhaps that one was obvious).
- IP Webcam Android app.
- IP Camera Adapter software for Windows.
Read the whole thing, but the gist of it is you turn your Android device into a webcam server that gets its own IP address. From there you can connect your Windows machine to the device as a webcam via the IP Camera Adapter.
I’m actually not even sure what the practical use for this would be, unless you’re really just too cheap to buy a webcam, but it’s still cool.
And no, Camcloud won’t work with your “Android Webcam” (sorry!) but you can of course, connect to Camcloud via an Android device!
