Sony Ericsson Camera Mobile Phones

SE Webcam can help you partially get the job done. With this utility you can use your Sony Ericsson phone camera to take snaps, but it is not possible to live stream the video directly onto your computer screen. This would only help if you are taking your own photographs and renders useless for live video chat / conference applications. This little tool is available in 5 different languages and is free to use.

Pavan other than SE Webcam I think there is no other application used as webcam for Sony erricsson

I have Sony Erricsson W810i and have been searching for similar applications but couldn’t find the required one..!!

@ EchoBlogger,

The coincidence is that I too use the same handset. To the best of my knowledge, there are no good apps other than that. Though Nokia or other symbian mobiles including blackberry and windows mobile have different paid apps for web camera on mobile phone.

nice post man.. i was going to buy a web cam but now i will use my Nokia N95 for this purpose !

you really rock man

I have a Samsung SGH-A737, and although I’ve never used this feature, I know it has the capability to send or receive video chat, though only one way. So I know, for example, that I could call a skype number and have that skype to record my video live. But I am searching to see if there is any other way to send a live video feed from my Samsung phone to a public web service such as youtube which could continuously record as long as my phone could stay connected. I think such a feature could be useful in case I was in danger of being attacked and I wanted to record the identity of the attacker without him being able to remove the evidence simply by destroying my phone. And of course I would want it to be located in the cloud or a public web service in case I was attacked at home and my own computer was at risk of being stolen as well as my phone. I know the technology exists, but I need help to find it. Thanks!
