Can I use my iPad as a wireless webcam for my PC? I think the solution would be an app streaming the video captured by the iPad's camera from the iPad to the PC where another app would decode it, emulating a local webcam like ManyCam does (ManyCam could very well be part of the solution to this problem). Kinda like Air Video but reversed. I haven't been able to figure out how to do it; has anyone else figured it out?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Thank you. In my mind it was a valid question about software, sorry for going off-topic. – Kaze no Koe Aug 24 '11 at 19:57

How about PocketCam? It's only 5 dollars, and it does the job-even optimized for iPad. Never used it before, but it sounds useful.
