    Old Cell Phone = New Web Cam

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...s.webcam&hl=en


    I found this app that makes being able to watch your printer so much easier than a regular web cam. Plus, it repurposes something that you were probably going to throw away. You can view it from any computer on your network, even your TV, by simply typing in the IP address that it gives you and selecting the correct video/audio format. You can then control the camera from your computer/TV.

    Throw away? Whaaaaaaat?I still have my old StarTac and a Nokia in a box somewhere. There are too many good components in stuff these days to just pitch. Yes, I may be a hoarder.

    Don't forget to disable your google account after downloading the IP Webcam app. Kept getting disconnects and couldn't figure out what was going on. Well google thought they needed to update every damn thing on this 8 year old phone. Factory refresh, download IP Webcam, delete google accout. Fixed.
