      Iriun Webcam vs EpocCam opinions
      Most users think Iriun Webcam is a great alternative to EpocCam.
      Free version is fully functional. Only difference: an unobtrusive watermark. (5 $ inapp purchase to get rid of it.) Both apps (I have tested Android and Windows) are easy to set up and just work.

    2. DroidCam – Use your Android phone as a wireless webcam or an IP Cam! Use your phone as a webcam/mic on your PC over WiFi or USB! Allows you to chat using "DroidCam Webcam" on your computer (Skype/Yahoo/etc..), and talk via "DroidCam Microphone*".
