    Just curious because the video quality on it seems a lot better than my actual Webcam, and I know I could record videos on the device itself, but I want to utilize it as a webcam so I can save videos to my computer's harddrive directly instead of on the Playbook, and also use it for live broadcasting. I know it can be used for live broadcasting purposes on its own as I have a Ustream where I have recorded some footage using the playbook and the Ustream web client.

    All you need for that is the right software. I just don't think anyone coded such an app yet.

    It should be doable, IIRC there was a similar app for symbian long back. One needs to install the app in PC and than in mobile. the name was mobiola

    Just checked, it is still there, Mobiola Web Camera: iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Symbian smartphone as PC webcam!

    ah, that's a shame. I really have had good success with the front camera on this, its one of the best I've seen on a tablet or smartphone, and its better than this Webcam I bought for $70.
