Dear Friends,

Welcome to our Office. A largest hub of a lot of things, including Video Lectures, Video Tutorials, Tips and Tricks, Notes and too many other things which help you a lot in increasing your Skills.

There’s an old saying that “A picture is worth a thousand words” which is now replaced by a new saying that “A video is worth a million”. We know that there is a huge difference between a simple telephonic call and video call. A video call can simply change the tone of a conversation.

If you don’t have a webcam, but have a phone that runs Android 2.2 or higher then you can use it as Webcam instead of buying a separate Webcam for your Computer. But how????

Don’t worry, today, I am going to tell you the whole method. You just need to install couple of software and a Wifi connection.
