how to use cellphone as a webcam

Many of us are keeping in touch with the world using a laptop but not all laptops come with a built-in webcam. And although you can find a cheap webcam on our Quick Shop (under webcams), you most likely already have a mobile phone in your toolbox. And even if it is an old phone that you have in your possession, the trick I am about to show you will work for transforming that cellphone in your pocket into a webcam.

 

All you need is a java supported mobile phone with camera and bluetooth. Smart cam is a free java software compatibile for any java supported platform especially for symbian s60 phones.You have to install java application to your phone and its windows version in your PC .SmartCam is an open-source application that runs on Windows XP or Vista, enabling any S60-powered handset's camera to double up as a webcam.

 

Requirements:

* Windows PC

* Symbian S60 or phones with java platform

* Bluetooth

 

Simply download the file below and extract it using winrar and follow instructions.  Now you should be able to use Google Hangouts and other webcam applications online.
