I have a Logic USB Webcam. Is there software available that will allow me to connect to it as if it were an IP Camera? Specifically I'm trying to connect to it remotely through my Android Phone. There are a number of IP Cam viewers for Android.

I've had good luck with VLC and streaming webcams from pc to pc. I'm not sure if it will produce something that would be compatible with your phone, but it does support streaming via http. It has a built in streaming wizard, but you get more control running a script.

The fun part is you can have one VLC transmit, one view live, and one record to disk, all on separate machines.

You can get VLC here: VideoLan.org

And possibly out of date instructions here: Chapter 2: easy streaming
