Turn your mobile camera in a Webcam

Posted: June 10th, 2007 | Author: | Filed under: Tools/Service | 70 Comments »

Motvik, a Bangalore based startup, has launched public beta of their software WWIGO (Webcam Wherever I GO), that turns your mobile phone camera into a wireless Webcam. All you need to do is download and install the software on your PC/laptop. The software supports Yahoo Messenger, Skype and Windows Live messenger and you can also upload live video on Youtube. Currently, software supports only Symbian phones and Windows PC/laptop. I have to wait to test it because I posses a Sony Ericsson mobile phone :(

    Mobiola Web Camera supports both Symbian and J2ME Sony Ericsson phones. Try it at Warelex site http://www.warelex.com/products/webcam

    Same here dude, I also own Sony Ericsson but never mind, I am sure they will come out for more phones, since they want more of the market.

    Nice find though.
