How to Turn Your Smartphone Into a Webcam

Use your phone camera as a webcam

The first is the NDI HX Camera app from NewTek
NDI Virtual Input utility that tricks your video software into accepting the NDI input as a webcam is only available in NDI Tools for Windows

If you’re wanting to use an Android phone as a webcam, one of the most polished options we’ve found is DroidCam. Again, this only works with Windows, via the desktop client, but setup is simple—launch the Android app and it gives you an IP number that you can type into the Windows client, and you’re up and running.

Facebook's "Family"

The whole family... Facebook doesn't disclose revenue for its individual "children," bundling their financial info instead into their so-called "family of apps."
  • Facebook: The old parent, always cracking dad-jokes and sharing pictures of ferns and grandchildren.
  • Instagram: The too-cool-for-school teen child. Super fashionable, always taking Valencia-filtered selfies, and perennially drinking craft coffees while chilling on a white-sand beach.
  • WhatsApp: The cool, foreign cousin that's always studying abroad somewhere and reading Kant.
  • Messenger: The distant aunt that you always forget exists but go to when you need some random specific thing.
