I have an old Android phone and an old ifone too, there is a VLC app for the phones and ipad, so I am wondering if that might work somehow. If I could get it working then I could buy one of those $50 tablets and have a continuous monitor. THere might be some other apps too, I have not looked into it.
I have an application called TinyCam (Android) that does this, no idea whether it will support your camera. I have also heard of IP Cam and Quick Cam (I think). There are another hundred of these apps in the store, many of them hardware specific, if the generic ones don't work. I assume the Apple store is similarly blessed with options. I would not bother with VLC for this use, at least on Android. I expect one of the aforementioned apps will work more conveniently.
