Default Any way to use HTC as a webcam?

Well can it? I would assume you would need at least a rooted phone (not an issue).
Is there an app (native or on a PC) that can do this?

I know there was one for Sony phones (not 7 compatable ), and it would save me a few pound

Does this allow me to hook up my Hero to my PC and use it as a webcam on my PC?

Sorry if I was too vague.

Hi I just got the HTC Hero a few days ago, I downloaded a few apps from the "market" but havent been able to get them to work like I wanted. It doesnt seem like this qik one would work either.

Smile Re: Any way to use HTC as a webcam?

Qik is just a remote cam app that you can use wherever you want for live streaming to your Qik login / site.

I too am looking for an app that you can run on the Hero & PC where you can use it as a "static" cam attached to my laptop.

Qik is brilliant by itself, however as you said, it's no use if you want to use a webcam for MSN / Skype etc...

Default USB Webcam

I used USB webcam on my last phone. Droid incredible. It worked fine with Yahoo video chat. I broke the screen and have a new incredible. I can not find the app on the Market. It works but seems to be gone. Any info about it or any other solutions would be apprecieated. I also am not looking for a service to connect to. I have been able to get IP Webcam to view on google chrome but nothing else will find the cam.

I found this on lifehacker the other day and just happened to be reading the Hero thread (N1 owner myself). I haven't tried it but it looks like what you're after.

You dont need a rooted phone. I have used this on my HTC Desire for a while now..ie Smartcam Webcam by Deion. It makes the phone into a wireless wifi webcam. So as long as you are connecting to the same router with your pc and phone then the phone can be used as a wifi webcam.
You also need Smartcam software on your pc. I am on Vista ..this can be downloaded from http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/soft/4948600
It says it's version 1.0 but when you download it you will find that you get the latest version 1.4.
So all you do is start the app on the phone, start the smartcam software on your pc...start (say for example yahoo messenger on your pc) and reconfigure yahoo messenger to use the source camera as smartcam..(it will have that option in the source choices).
I found it works great on yahoo messenger video..haven't used it on any other messenger or video chat program.

The best app is IP Webcam. There are two ways to configure android as webcam. USB and wifi. Wifi is actually much easier as USB mode requires you to install adb on your computer. See this on how to do this for USB and Wifi for both Linux and Windows:
