IP Webcam, turn our phone into surveillance camera or webcam - video tutorial

Hi friends, in this video tutorial I will present a software for Android phones with which we can turn the phone into a webcam or surveillance app called IP Webcam, is free and can be found in Android Market.
Ip Webcam allows us to do a lot of stuff with your camera phone, in tutorial you will see how many functions does this application. On official website of IP Webcam Software you can find more details.
What we do with IP Webcam:
We can transform your phone into a webcam for Skype, Facebook, Google Plus, etc..
We can use your phone as a camera, it can be accessed anywhere in the world to be able to access the Internet phone to make a port forwarding the wireless router.
In addition to the video stream, we can also activate audio, so we can hear everything that happens in the room where we left the "spy" phone.
Password can access the application menu functions on your phone, so we could only watch the stream on which it makes the phone. I think I forgot to tell you, the application is installed on the phone and Popat be accessed from anywhere, once set IP Webcam app we do not work with the phone, start the server from the menu on the phone and ready, the action moves from the desktop browser , tablet or other mobile.
In addition to simply stream video and audio, we have a few remote commands, we can adjust the focus, we can turn on or turn off your phone flash, and others such as screenshots.
Where can I watch the stream?
Wherever we have a browser that supports JavaScript (99 100%% mobile and desktop). We can watch live phone and using a video player, VLC media player is recommended.
Stream and remote menu can be confort with any browser but weaker devices can run pretty jerky stream.
If we decide to use your phone as a webcam, you have to install Webcam 7, You can use this application with other IP cameras.

  1. A software that I had but I deleted it because I only had space and now I put it in again and it's really ok I like it, but you Cristi said you see the thief with the new flash for that IR had to be used (infra-red ) to see the thief mocking him, not the flash because that's how the thief gets scared and runs away :)), it's a bit unpleasant that where he stores the data you can't stay around and that's not bad. 🙂

  16. Hello,
    Any idea what I need to connect the soft 2 Android devices via bluetooth and see in real time

    • Adrian Gudus said

      Unfortunately Bluetooth speed and range are very small for anyone to bother her with an application to do what you want. Even if that happens, you need to log into your other device.
      From what I understand / infer you want to spy on your neighbor, your smartphone to start her without her permission required.
      Whatever your reason, this is not possible and not think it will soon be possible for the reasons mentioned earlier this comentaariu.

        You need a static IP to access the camera outside the network (when you are not at home) and for that you can use DynDNS. Type up in the search box on the top right “Two free DynDNS addresses with dynamic IP setting for .tk or other” press the Enter key and you will find the tutorial.

          Thanks a lot for reply.
          I have static IP Telekom, that's the problem.
          For it may be something simple, but I fail.
          Static IP, from TELEKOM, HG658 router, specifically I have a phone with ip cam, I connect it, it gives me "", I connect at home, but it doesn't work outside. I think port forward may not have been done correctly; but it worked with the above problems. In the meantime they changed my router, that it was defective, and I took it from the head. Now I can't do it any way. If possible, I would prefer you to help me with TeamViewer, against bere binenteles.
          Thank Moreover,
