DroidCam is a very small application and it will help you to save money since you do not have to buy a new webcam. This is especially the case in the event that your phone has a quality camera.
As you launch the app, it appears on the computer screen and takes up around one sixth of the space. Then, you get to choose how to connect to the smartphone. 4 options are available:
- Bluetooth through PC server
- WiFi through PC server
- USB cable
You can select to use both audio and video but usually, just video is enough, especially if your computer has a better microphone than the one of the smartphone. Then, you select outputs, which also allows you to change output size and rotate it.
The easiest ways to use DroidCam is to utilize WiFi. The connection is really fast. However, you can also use the USB cable, but you would need a long enough one to make it easy to use the smartphone as a webcam.
