Do you need an ad-hoc wireless camera system? Why not use your Android phone as a web cam? IP Webcam is an Android app that lets you transform your phone into a network camera which will let you remotely view videos that are captured real-time. You can view the video via a browser or stream it over your phone.

After installing the app on your phone, you need to configure the settings which include the login and password, resolution, frames per second, image quality, and TCP port. Once you are set, press “˜Start Server’ on the app and it will display the URL of the video so you can view it remotely.

Keep in mind that you need a Java browser plugin to view the video in your browser. Furthermore, you may also take snapshots using the “˜Take Immediate Photo’ feature.
