    Monile phone camera as webcam possible?

    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.
