I chose this method after testing several. I thought it was the simplest and it yielded the most satisfactory result.

<p>So let's get down to business. To use your smartphone as a webcam, you will need two things:</p><div class='code-block code-block-3' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>
<div data-ad=

– Download the app below on smartphone:

DroidCam Wireless Webcam

– Download and install on your pc the application below:

DroidCam v3.6.2

The use is very simple. After everything is installed, open the app on your smartphone. It will present a screen with an IP address and a serial port, as pictured below:

<p>Leave your device with this screen, and now open the program <strong>DROIDCAM CLIENT</strong>, which was downloaded and installed on your pc, and a window will open like the photo below:</p>

Now just choose: if you want to connect via the Wi-Fi router, you have to copy the IP number from your device screen to the space where it says "Phone IP" and click "connect"; If you want to connect via USB cable, choose USB connection option and click "connect". In either case, the screen of your device will turn black, indicating that everything is working.

In my Skype, I had to go to the video settings and select the webcam source, as in the photo below:

<p>Now you can use your smartphone as a webcam.</p>
<p>Tips:</p>
<p>1- If your Skype or other messaging program does not recognize the application, restart the pc and it will recognize;</p><div class='code-block code-block-7' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>
<div data-ad=

2- Video quality depends on your smarphone cam; So if you have a cam vga, chances are the picture doesn't look very good.

I tested this app on Android 2.3, 4.0 and 4.2. It worked perfectly on everyone. As for Windows, it has been tested on a win7 32.
