Step 3: Setting Up ICam

The program for your computer is called 'iCamSource'. I dragged mine to the doc on my mac for convenience. Open iCamSource and set up a username and password. These can easily be changed and it is only for verification when you try to view your files via your ipod/iphone. Remember, use something crazy for a username and password. Some people use their names (not smart) and once I just typed in 'Scott' for the username and 'Scott' for the password (on my iphone) just to see what would happen (I was with my friend Scott; that is not my name) and low and behold, someone had icam set up and we could watch (technically, this is invasion of privacy, but there is no way to tell if someone is on using your username and password-icamsource will not tell you 'iphone in use' or 'you are being watched' or something like that.

Now, you can set your sensitivity of the speed, select where you want the video and/or audio to come from (I used the built in isight camera and microphone) and once you're ready, you click 'start' and the camera will turn on.
<p>Can this work for Android Samsung phone and Windows 7 laptop?</p>
If the program was installed on another computer entirely, would it still work, or does my iPhone have to connect with that computer at least once?<br />
&nbsp;Sorry for the late reply. &nbsp;The program will still work. &nbsp;You will have to know the username and password of that computer's &quot;iCam&quot; program. So if you set both programs to have the same username and password, and then open it on your iphone/ipod touch(although you do need wifi for the ipod touch) then they both should pop up so you can watch whats happening on both computers.<br /> <br /> But, just for legal purposes, if you install it on someone's computer without their permission or knowledge and set it up and turn it on without them knowing, it is illegal. &nbsp;So, make sure they are on your computers or you have the owners permission.<br /> <br /> Also, sometimes people put their name as both the username and password. &nbsp;So even if you guess the username and password of someone else, that is also illegal. (Depends on your state, but in most states it is illegal).<br />
