DroidCam is a tool for the PC (with a separate Android version available from the Google Play Store -- required) which allows users to use their cell phone as a webcam input source.
The concept is pretty simple and a good one at that. All you have to do is get the program running, configured and setup on your PC and run the Android client. DroidCam will connect either by WiFi, Ethernet or USB.
It is advisable to follow all of the steps. Once completed, you can use your Android-powered device and its camera as a webcam for usage on Skype, AIM, YIM or pretty much any other instant messaging application. DroidCam is therefore an alternative to purchasing a separate webcam for your PC.DroidCam features and highlights:
