    N95 as webcam

    I've got this software from a friend, but I don't know if it's freeware or not. (Probably not!)
    So I won't post everything I know.

    This software is installed on your computer and N95, and makes your phone act like a webcam.
    Works with both bluetooth and USB.

    This is what I used:
    Warelex Mobiola WebCam USB v1.04 S60v3 OS9.1

    Mobiola Web Camera 3 (S60v3)

    What software is this? I'm rather skeptical that this can work via bluetooth

    You'd get about 5 min usage, before it drained the battery!

    I have not tried WiFi.
    It uses alot of battery, but if your plugged in while using it..

    I think its a usable piece of software.

    Thanks fillabom. ProyectHunter has also provided us a link to this as well as another software BTWebCamera in the Camera Subforum under General 95. Got to try it.

    I realised that both these applications do not support wifi (only USB and Bluetooth). Have you come across any such (webcam) applications that support wifi or 3G cos as we know bluetooth isn't good for video streaming?

    Hi, I wonder if any of you have tried using ComVu Pocketcaster which allows you to stream live videos to the internet via wifi,3G,GPRS, etc.

    ComVu - Live Mobile Video Broadcasting & User-Generated Video Sharing - "Live from the palm of your hand!"

    It's currently Beta version, however, they will introduce pricing later.
    It seems, it even supports automated geo-tagging.

    I tried ComVu live video broadcast last week and found it has better picture quality, but the video streaming was quite laggy....

    Hi, I just came across this article from the N95Users mainpage:
    Nokia N95 blog - Use your N95 as a webcam: WWIGO

    It seems there is another software (WWIGO) that can be used...to use your N95 as a webcam...I'll give this a try, but I don't think it'll be any different from the Mobiola WebCam software as it also uses bluetooth...

    bt would be too slow to be used as a webcam in combination with pc/laptop. to my knowledge its only 30 /40 kb/sec or so? wifi or usb cable woudl be better
    and at 5 megapixel you'll need a higher speed. ( i think thats why its so slow Mechdon)

    Thanks mahoaga. In fact, I never thought that using bluetooth was even possible (to use N95 as webcam for PC) initially. So far, there has been a couple of programs that uses bluetooth but none that I know of using wifi...know of any similar software that uses wifi? If there is, it'll be great.

    Yes, although apperently you have to pay for it now.

    However, theres loads of alternatives. I use slick, which works with anything (AOL, ICQ, YIM, MSN etc).
    I do not give instructions on how to bypass satnav copy protection. So please do not ask via forum or PM.

    Pay for you're software, this helps makers produce updates and support the product.
