Hello,

Under linux, there is nothing like that for using a phone as a webcam. If you need a webcam that bad, you can find a few online for dirt cheap.

Cheers,

Josh

I haven't used this, but it looks like you'll need to download the application from here for you pc

http://sourceforge.net/projects/smar...linux_v_1.4.0/

and the application for your phone from here.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/smar...linux_v_1.4.0/

There are typically some instructions in the source files in a README or something of that nature.
