    I'm looking to link up a webcam or 2 so I can view them on my iPhone.
    I'd also like it to record if possible etc.

    Looking for setups people have done and have working for them.

    Thanks :apple:

    I believe he wants to RECEIVE a live webcam stream on his iPhone.

    For what naughty reasons, we can only assume.

    There is a character on the US version of "The Office" named Angela that you would get along with well.

    I think the best option would be to hook a camera up to the computer and somehow get the computer to create a live stream viewable on the iPhone. This would be a massive bandwidth hog and is really really impractical.

    Amazing app and super easy to use

    Took about 5 minutes to setup and streams great over wifi and 3G
