Use your Windows Mobile device as a webcam

Although webcams are not expensive these days, but hey.. one of the focused things on this website is ‘to save more money!‘. And if you own yourself a Windows Mobile device – here’s how you can turn that into a PC webcam device (and yes, keep all the cords aside as this works via WIFI as well! – so that makes it better than a real webcam?!).

phone as webcam

Any Windows Mobile phones should work with this, as well as Symbian phones.

All you need to do is head over HERE and download the latest Webcamera Plus.

Run the executable on your PC, and sync your device to finish installation.

There are 2 ways to run it, 1 via the activesync cable connected to your USB port – in this case, run Webcamera Plus application on your PC, and then launch Webcamera Plus on your device and click Start.

The other way is to use WIFI. First, ensure your device is connected to your PC network. Open up Webcamera Plus application on your PC, launch Webcamera Plus on your device…

configure webcamera to work with wifi

Click Menu > Settings > Network

set webcamera to work with wifi config

Uncheck ‘autodetect ip’ and enter your computer name in IP-address field. Leave the rest unchanged.

Click Done > Start and you will have Webcamera Plus running decently on Wifi 🙂

Enjoy!
