STEP 1) Download and Install IP CAMERA from Google Play
STEP 2) Set A Login/Pass from the menu screen... also, enable audio (Very Laggy), Prevent phone from going to sleep.
STEPS 3) (This is if you plan on controlling and viewing your phone from outside the home, if you don't move on to step four)
1. Make sure you can view your IP Camera from inside your house using a web browser. For example, "http://192.168.1.23". If your camera is using DHCP then you'll have to check your router for which IP address it is using (or use the manufacturer's tool to find the camera).
2. If your camera is using DHCP, then setup your router so that it always gives the same static IP address for the camera based on it's MAC address (will be visible from the router). Alternatively, you can just set the camera to a 192.x.x.x IP that is outside the range of the DHCP range.
3. Now that your camera has a static IP address visible from inside your house, you need to make it visible from outside the house. Setup your router to allow port forwarding from a high port like 10123 on it's external interface to the camera's IP address and port 80. See Port Forwarding Guides Listed by Manufacturer and Model - PortForward.com
for more details. Once this step is done, you can now access your camera from outside using the external ip and port 10123. Use this tool to verify: Open Port Check Tool
4. Most internet service providers now give out dynamic IP addresses to your router so next, you need to use a dynamic dns service so people outside can locate your router (and camera). I use http://www.afraid.org
but there are many others that are free also. Basically, I configure the router to report it's external IP address to the afraid.org any time it's IP address changes. Afraid.org associates an address like "mycam.dyndns.org" to my router's IP address.
5. Finally, make sure you can now view the camera using a browser from the outside (try a friend's house). For example, "http://mycam.dyndns.org:10123"
6. Great, now configure IP Cam Viewer to see your camera(s) once and your cameras will come up when the app is launched.
hope that helps...

Note: some ddns services are just simple http redirects which do not work. To test, type the url into a browser and if it changes to a numeric IP address then it's a cheap http redirect (and NOT a true dynamic dns hostname).
STEP 4) Start the Server, and note the connecting address needed (Unless you followed STEPS 3) click actions on the top right hand corner of the screen. Press Fade, this will fade the screen to black. It is best to turn the brightness all the way down. If you plan on recording the video, keep going on to step five, if not you are done, please note you can connect as many computers as you want to this set up.
STEP 5) GO WITH YOUR OS!!

I don't use mac, but the process is the same. Download a screen recorder, and record your region of the desktop. You may turn the monitor of the computer off, but not the computer itself and set up the pc so that it will not turn the screen off.
AND THERE YOU GO!! That's how you use your android as a camera!!
