Iriun 4K Webcam for PC and Mac
The first application that will allow you to turn your smartphone into a webcam is Iriun. This app was us suggested by one of our readers.
In summary, via USB, smarpthone is connected to a Windows, Mac or Linux computer, working as a webcam for use in any communication service. In addition, one of its particularities is to support 4K resolution. Its usability is intuitive and does not present an exaggerated lag.

Another similar option is the iVCam Webcam. It also allows you to use your smartphone (or tablet) as a webcam with a USB connection. The advantage of being USB is that the delay is very low. However, it also allows wireless connection.
However, it should be noted that the wireless options do not present such satisfactory results, even if they can be remedied.

Finally, the suggestion even goes for a wireless solution. The IP Webcam presents itself as an app that turns the smartphone into a camera and reproduces the image through the Wi-Fi network.
In the tests done, this was the solution that presented less quality in terms of image reproduction and with more delay.
