Is there a piece of software out there that would allow me to use my iPhone as a webcam? Basically I'm looking to be able to utilize my 3g and camera on the phone to be able to stream video from it. Has this been done?

You need a jailbroken iPhone to do that. If you already are JB, then I'm sure you find what you're looking for in Cydia.

I used Qik. It's pretty nice. I was hoping there would be a way to make the computer think your iPhone is an actual webcam :(.

Back when I was jailbroken, I preferred flixwagon, quality-wise, to Qik. Things may have changed in a couple months.
