    Webcam app?

    I'm looking for an app that will enable me to use a separate webcam attached to the tablet. I have the USB adapter and when I connect the camera the tab reports a connection. I've tried a few apps that say they can use an external web cam but they don't seem to work.

    I would like to use this set-up with the webcam on a telescope and show people views of planets on my Tab2 10.1.

    If you have any ideas, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum

    All the WEB CAMs I am aware of require drivers that won't work with Android. If you can't find one that says it will work with Android it won't. With most current gen tablets and phones having front and rear cameras I don't think it pays for a company to develop a separate WEB Cam.

    Yeah, I was hoping an app called SimpleWebCam would work ( https://bitbucket.org/neuralassembly/simplewebcam ) but did wonder how it would be done.

    I'll try to contact them.

    Thanks.

    This app won't work with a web cam, but if you own or can borrow a Nikon or Canon DSLR, Helicon Remote will do what you want
    It is free at Google Play.

    Another alternative is to buy an IP camera that can connect to your network, something like the Foscam FI8910W, and then you can use the IP Cam Viewer on your Tab to view what is shown on the camera.

    Thanks to everyone for their replies and suggestions! I do have a Canon DSLR and will give Helicon Remote a try.

    Just gave Helicon Remote a try and it works great - plug-n-play. What's especially noteworthy is it supports Live View.

    Thank you.
