Dropcam for Android: Mobile Access to Video from your Webcam


Video courtesy of dropcamViewing streaming video from your own webcam on a mobile phone was reasonably difficult just a few years ago. I bought a WiFi web cam myself last year to use as a “pet cam” and found that streaming its video to a variety of mobile devices was simple to do.

Dropcam’s video streams can be viewed on mobile devices using just a mobile web browser. However, they say that their dedicated app provides a better user interface experience. They also provide an optional DVR service for $8.95 per month that records all of your camera’s video and stores it for up to 30 days.
