Hi guys welcome to dear friend today you will learn about use android camera as webcam so let’s start to read it properly.

Dear friend Maybe you want to Skype record a vlog or hang out with some friends on Google Plus, whatever the case, you’re going to need a webcam, if you don’t have a built in webcam, but you do have an Android phone. Let me show you how to turn this into a webcam for your PC. To get started, you’re going to need to download two programmes.

 First on your computer, download the IP camera adapter for windows which you can find here. You’ll also need a free app on your phone or tablet called IP webcam. Once you have both installed, make sure that your Android and computer are on the same Wi Fi network.

That’s the only way this is going to work. Now launch the IP webcam app on your android phone and you’ll be presented with a list of options and quality settings, decide on the resolution, I’ll use 1280 by 720 the quality, I’ll stick with 50 and the frames per second. Just know that as you raise the overall quality, you’ll also increase the chances of there being lag.

 So don’t get crazy, especially if you have poor Wi Fi connection. Okay, you’ll see some other options here like orientation, so pick portrait or landscape, and even the option to use your androids front facing camera, which I’ll select. I’d also suggest setting a username and password to prevent others from accessing your camera. We’re all done here.

So I’ll scroll down to start server to start the video stream. Now we’ll set up the rest on the computer. Open up the IP camera adapter programme. In the first field, enter the IP address and port number that shows up on the bottom of your Android screen. Enter your login and password and then click auto detect and you’ll see it adjust to match what your camera is sending. Hit OK.

 And now my Android phone is ready to active as my webcam even if you can’t see it yet. I’ll set it down here where it has a good view of my face. And now a launch Skype to test this out. Whenever you open a web page or app like Skype that uses your webcam, you’ll have to select your Android as a source for Skype. I’ll go to options, video Settings and select m JPEG camera.

That’ll do the trick and boom, and one thing to note. This whole setup will drain your Android’s battery so keep it plugged in while you use it as a webcam. And watch this video for same click here
