September 19th, 2011, 08:58 AM
Is it possible to link my mobile and my PC and use my Mobile's camera as Webcam in Ubuntu? Any special app which can do this? Currently I think some mobiles could be used as a modem if you have a 3G connection ...I think there should be a way to use the cam also.. I have LG GT350i mobile..Any ideas pl let me know

Not sure if possible, but i think it will fail with the drivers..unless there is such a feature on the phone, i would call this impossible. But then again, as a non-camera phone owner, i cannot confirm this. Good luck tho, this would be quite the bonus if it worked..

It would be a lot of work, but possible, on an Android phone. Since you can hack your way through it. The phone should be able to stream directly to a computer, and there are even apps that offer streaming via the internet (so not as USB webcam).

But on phones with closed source OS, I don't believe it will be possible.
