I have an old Android phone (Droid 1) that I no longer use but, if possible, I'd like to set it up so that it streams a video feed to the internet. Something I can view in a browser. Obviously, it would need to work in conjunction with some app on the phone.

I've been searching for possible solutions but, haven't come across anything. Most articles/apps discuss streaming video TO the phone, rather than FROM it.

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Unfortunately, I haven't had luck with any of these. Qik allows me to take private video but, it freezes when I try to broadcast private video. Both and don't allow private channels. – Batfan May 14 '12 at 19:43
Hmm, you did not specify that private streaming was one of the requirements..Maybe explain a bit better what exactly you are trying to achieve? – Mxx May 15 '12 at 19:23
Something along the lines of a security camera. Keeping an eye on my kids/pets, from the office. – Batfan May 15 '12 at 21:45
