If so, how? Could it be implemented via a USB, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection?

  • Okay, well, now, this is just a duplicate of another answer. (Yes, I can see that this predates the other.) – ale Oct 28 '10 at 13:36
  • It worked as a regular webcam when used in conjunction with this software ip-webcam.appspot.com – Jader Dias May 30 '11 at 1:00

Droidcam is supposed to do it over wifi. Qik is a good option if you don't need a computer in the loop.


Justin.tv just came out with an Android app to do video streaming.

It uses any data connection you have, but the faster/more reliable the connection the better quality you will get.

  • While it cannot be used in every way a webcam does, it will cover some of its functions. – Jader Dias Sep 22 '10 at 11:30

The IP Webcam app gets good reviews.


DroidCam is another option.

I've had very good performance from Qik. It can also buffer your video, so if your 3G/4G connection is bad, it will upload later when you have a better signal. WiFi is of course also supported, very simple, very quick ;-)

  • I think Qik is more similar to the share with Youtube Gallery function, than Droidcam – Jader Dias Sep 22 '10 at 11:28
