Use your iPhone or Android device as a webcam for Zoom on your PC or Mac
Passing this along since many of us are now living on Zoom for both work and music lessons/sessions.
My ancient Logitech USB web cam is pretty lousy as far as video quality and low light sensitivity for use with Zoom on my Windows PC.
Rather than buy a new webcam, I found an app called “EpocCam” that turns your iPhone into a high-resolution webcam for Zoom running on your Windows or Mac computer. You install a driver on the computer that connects to the phone via WiFi or USB and it shows up as an available video capture device in Zoom!
I’m using it with the front facing camera on my old iPhone 6. There is also an Android version available.
While I know you can run Zoom directly from a mobile device, I prefer to run my larger Zoom music sessions and lessons on my desktop as that’s where I have my higher quality audio setup and it’s easier to manage the meetings with a mouse on a large monitor.
