    Default Camera Mobile As Webcam?

    Can we use a Sony Ericsson Mobile Phone (in my case a K550i) as a webcam? So that i can use the phone while chatting on gtalk or yahoo messenger?

    Is it possible with the data cable provided along with the phone, to use it as a webcam?

    no need to abuse me if you find this query as stupid.

    The size of the file is around 808 kb but still the pop -up window isnt accepting it..It displays an error indicating that the size is exceeding the allowed size by around 87 kb..

    No java phone can be used as webcam and yes ofcourse you can upload the videos captured from it. Only the smart phones from nokia i.e. symbian phones and other linux from motorola and window mobile from other companies can be used. But not k750i and k550i, as they both are java phones.

    not to be mean or anything , but i think u wud get more help if u asked this question in a mobile forum!!

    by the way nothing beats mobiola in using a smartfone as a webcam!!&also java fones are pretty limited so this is the best i can find - Software @ Hitziger.NET

    but it can only take pictures and send it to your pc

    It is possible. But as my friends said in other posts, it is possible only through Nokia smartphones Like the N-Series,E-Series and Other S-60 And .sisx Phones.
