    Can anyone help me, as I want to use my Android phone as a webcam, with a 224hr loop recording. For security outside my building.

    How much memory would I need for this?

    What app can do this?

    Is it possible?


    Many thanks

    Yes, you can use your Android phone as the webcam with the application available on the Google play store.
    1. Install the webcam app on your phone
    2. Connect your phone and your computer with the same wifi network
    3. Close other webcam apps
    4. Launch the apps and click on start server
    5. It will provide you a URL.
    6. Open the URL on your computer
    7. Select the browser. You will see a menu video renderer and below it an audio renderer
    8. Choose HTML wave
    9. Install VLC media player and then open the URL as in the step 5.
    10. Your app can work if your phone screen is off also.
