Use Your Phone as a Webcam Wirelessly!

livestream tools and resources video Jun 06, 2019

You may wonder why in the world you would want to use your phone as a webcam much less wirelessly?  However, the truth of the matter is if you have a recent smartphone with a nice camera then you do not need to buy a webcam. You can use your webcam for an HD look and gain some flexibility with your phone.

 

Flexibility with your Phone as a Webcam

By using an app, namely EpocCam, you can use your phone via wifi aka wirelessly or connected via a USB cable.  While I have used both, I prefer the wireless option so that I can position my phone anywhere that I like without the hassle of wires.

Sharpness

It goes without saying that the included cameras on most laptops or built-in computers like an iMac are "okay".  They're not great but they will work.  When you want to "level-up" for view, you could purchase an HD camera or use your existing smartphone.

Phone as Webcam Gear

I use a Reticam Tabletop tripod and the Reticam adapter to attach the phone to the tripod.  It's also pretty steady and not one of those cheap plastic options.

 How I Use my Phone as a Webcam

I have used this in a Zoom meeting and I've tested it when livestreaming using Ecamm Live for Mac.  However, if I'm going to live stream, I will connect my USB to my computer or to a power outlet so that it can continue to charge during the broadcast.
