Tipid Tip: Don’t buy a webcam. Use your phone instead!

di ko alam bakit ako nagkukuripot sa webcam. well, kasi naman, yung relatively acceptable na quality ng C270 ay kulang para sa akin. for around 2k, yun lang ang kaya ng budget. a better quality webcam like the logitech C920 costs an arm and a leg (for poor me). so naghanap ako ng paraan. at ayun, nakita ko na pwede naman pala. gamitin lang ang DroidCam app and client sa PC.

install the android app and the client sa laptop or desktop. run both and input the IP address on the client to detect the android device and you’re good to go. pretty straight forward eh? well, yan ay kung may wifi pareho ang devices mo. paano naman ako na naka-desktop?

mas kumplikado ng kaunti. no need to root your phone though.just enable USB debugging mode. iba-iba yata depende sa unit ng phone pero mostly it’s just several taps on your system settings para ma-enable. then kapag sinaksak mo ang phone mo, choose/select yung ‘tether’ option, hindi file transfer or charging lang. sa Client program sa desktop, piliin mo lang yung USB imbes na wifi para ma-dectect yung phone. and then you’re all set!

sharing this dahil feeling ko lahat tayo nag-o-online meeting, mapa-Google Hangouts, Zoom, Team, o kung ano pang messaging at meeting app pero gusto din magtipid. buy the essentials. the rest, tingnan ano ang pwede na at pwede pa. 🙂
