    This would be a cool feature, as there is some software out there that lets you use like cannon cameras a webcams, so u can display what the cameras filming on the computer screen. i tried that software and many other software with my iphone and it doesnt work. does anybody know any software and cydia package that will allow me to do this? i asked someone at the apple store before my phone was jailbroken and they said "no, but theres probably a jailbreak app for it". and i was like "wtf?" you work for apple, your supposed to be against this and your telling me how i can benefit from it. ok but that was just something i wanted to say. but any help at all is appreciated. thanks in advance!

    Why would you want to do this anyway?, Macs already have iSight.

    actually if i use my mac's isight, i cant record around the room. try checking out this app that i found. pocketcam on the appstore. 5 bucks but its pretty cool. also works over wifi and is pretty clear.

    Not all Macs have built-in webcams. The Mini would be one example.

    its not on cydia or the app store. do i have to download it then ssh, or is it in a different repository?
