Hi, I am using iphone 4 with me and I don't have a webcam in my computer, I connect to internet from my computer using a modem which don't have a wifi, is it possible to use my camera (front/rear facing) in the iphone as a webcam that is connected through USB?, Just like a USB webcam. I don't to access the camera through tethering, just the phone connect to my computer as a USB webcam through iTunes and access it through skype or yahoo messenger ? by the way my phone is running on 4.2.1 OS

Thanks!

Integrated computer, Windows XP

    I have no idea as to whether you can use it as a webcam on your computer but have you downloaded Skype with the latest update to your Iphone 4. You can do video calls on that now.

    yeah.. I have skype installed on my iphone but 3G services are yet to be launched for my carrier in India. They say that they may launch it next month, but not sure exactly. So I found this app iCam in app store which says the iCamSource can be either firewire or USB, so does it mean that we can access iPhone video as a iCamSource from the USB and use it through yahoo messenger or skype installed in my computer?
