Can I use my cellphone camera as a webcam?


It's a little Nokia from about 2 and 1/2 half years ago, when I plug in the USB into the computer, it pops up a menu with 3 options, I forget what. But can I just use the camera as a webcam, to broadcast video (teleconference) over the net?


thanks.

here is a solution http://www.mobiola.com/mobiola-web-camera, you need to install something to the phone. I do not know if anything similar exists for linux.

I think it is not possible because when you plugin nokia phone using pc suite the 3 options are
1. Data Transfer
2. PC Suite
3. Synchronize

On that option there's no Use Camera as web cam
Unless if you are using china made nokia phone (Nokia Clone)
When you plug in phone there's an option where in you can use phone camera as webcam.
