Hey

Whats a (perfer free) application/mobile application for using my Android phone as a USB webcam? Id understand that I would have to install something on my PC as well.

If it can be Bluetooth and/or WiFi even better

Thanks

I have used something like that before, and it sucks over usb
Wifi would be preferred
Google "camera over wifi android" or search for "camera over wifi" in market

But can this be used in things such as messenger and Skype?

Check out Remote Web Desktop from the market, it has an option to connect via wifi and view your phones camera with your browser.

The best USB webcam app for android is DroidCam.

But if you have Wifi, go for IpWebcam. The WiFi option is more easier and flexible. To use with USB, you need to install adb on your computer as well. Wifi just needs an app on your phone and a client driver on your PC. See this for details on configuring both -
Android as webcam using IP Webcam and DroidCam.

I was looking for something that a program that uses a webcam (such as Skype) be able to detect and choose my phone as a webcam and use it as such.
