Hi,

So, I have wall mounted an original Nexus 7. It have it running some cool wall mount apps, and I am doing some home automation with it. I would love to be able to use the camera on it as a webcam, and I have found a few apps that would let me do it (IP Webcam, IP Camviewer, Wifi Camera). The problem is that when you start those apps, it turns on your tablet camera, and displays it on the screen. IP Webcam is designed to background it. The problem is that when I try to pull it up remotely, the camera only works remotely, if it is being actively displayed on the screen. As soon as I background it, it stops streaming. I was wondering if this is something that is built into the kernel, or the rom, or the device. Does anyone have an suggestions?

Thanks,
Josh
