Mobiola WebCam is a cool app that turns your phone into a video camera for online chats. The software uses your mobile's camera as a fully-fledged webcam for Windows.

Video chat used to be something that we only dreamed about in films like Blade Runner or Total Recall. Now it's a reality and the technology has become so advanced that it's possible to chat face-to-face on your mobile phone. Mobiola WebCam basically consists of two parts: the client application on your phone and a webcam server installed on your PC that processes the images sent from your camera.

Mobiola WebCam's camera-to-PC communication all takes place via the magic of Bluetooth, meaning that images are processed pretty quickly, so there's not too much lag when transmitting them to the web, though obviously the smoothness will still depend on the speed of your net connection.

There are a number of options you can tinker with to enhance the quality of your moving images, such as contrast, image quality and compression rate, though Mobiola WebCam has little in the way of fancy effects or anything to heighten the fun. Many Windows-based webcam programs out there do contain special features, but the advantage of using your phone with a program like Mobiola WebCam is that you can really harness the power of the very latest camera phone technology.

If you don't have a webcam, or want a more versatile solution to your current cam, then Mobiola WebCam is an essential download.

Turn your Sony Ericsson phone into a high-quality web camera and throw out your bulky USB webcam. Very simple to install and configure, Mobiola Web Camera 1.0 consists of two software components:

  • A client application that resides on the phone, and
  • A webcam PC driver compatible with any Windows application that can receive video feeds from a web camera

Carry your webcam with you wherever you go and connect it to your laptop at anytime, there are versions with two connection options available: over Bluetooth (for UIQ and Series 60 phones) and using USB data cable (for Series 60 phones). Try it now and experience resolution and frame rates comparable to some of the top-performing USB webcams on the market!
