    Hi,

    I have an older version of a MAC PRO and don't have a webcam. I was wondering if you can use the ipod touch 4th generation as a webcam for Skype?

    You need an app called iWebcamera (there might be other ones like it). It's a VNC type of application which does that over wifi.

    Thank you very much

    I'm going to get it this week. I'll test it out and hopefully it will work.

    Skype directly?

    May I ask why you wouldn't just Skype directly from the iPod touch? Seems like a much easier option...
