As we know that the world is connected globally by the means of internet and technology. We can talk and chat with freinds and family in no time but when it comes to real video chat, we may not have webcam or poor quality webcam integrated in computer. But dont worry today I would like to share information about how to use our mobile phone as a webcam in application like skype and other camera based websites.
