    Hello friend,

    Yes, there many such apps for available for android.
    But personally I use ipwebcam which you can get here.
    You must have a WiFi connection on your device as well as on your PC.
    It accesses your phone camera and creates a server. You'll get an ip address which you have to paste in your PC browser.
    It also has some nice features. You can change video resolution and quality to match your internet speed.
    This app can also be used with Skype as a webcam.

    Regards!

    Yes,you can use as Webcam.But to do that it important you have front camera.If your phone has only Rear camera then it will not work.You will not be able to see the face of receiver.If your phone has front camera then install Skype or Tango.You can install these apps from Google Play/Android Market.You can have free.Once install need to create your account.Once created ready to use.Best would be Skype.If you install Skype then your friend or colleague should also posses Skype.Tango can also be good.But these will consume lots of space of your phone memory.At least 20 MB.So,install any one of those apps.
