- First of all, find a place to set up your phone which you are going to use as a webcam because placement plays a really important role here. Keep the phone with the good quality camera so that the transmitted pixels are understandable while watching. Secondly, while you choose the right place, keep in mind that you choose the place from where the socket is near so that the battery of the phone doesn’t die out and even if it does, you cannot let the phone just switch off else there would be a big mess created.
- The second thing is that you have to choose the connection process from four options. The first one is when you have a USB option by which you easily connect your phone through USB port and it starts working as a webcam for your PC. The second option we offer is the Wi-Fi one which is the easiest one as it just requires a good Wi-Fi network and by good here we mean that it just needs to have strong connections because it shall be kept in mind that if the internet loses its connection, the phone would stop working as a webcam. The third option available for connectivity is Wi-Fi server mode which requires a paid version of the app which is being used by the mobile phone. Also, in this mode, the PC acts as a server and the phone as a client. It requires a 3G/LTE availability to run for enabling the connection with an external IP. It means that now you are required to share the IP address with the laptop/PC so that both the phone and PC can link with each other easily. The last and the fourth option available is the Bluetooth server mode which is exactly same as the Wi-Fi server mode. The only change here is the usage of blue tooth.
- The last step is the installation of applications in your PC and your phone that allows the phone to be used as a webcam on your PC and later on after doing settings accordingly, you can have the IP addresses shared to make it work like the real webcam.
