How can I view my webcam from my Android-powered mobile device?

How can I use my Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 as a baby monitor? I want to view the video on my Android phone.

I have this logitech webcam and it's facing my kid's crib. On my laptop, I can use Skype and easily view my kid, but unfortunately, the Skype app for Android (v 2.1) does not support video. What other software, or combination of software, can I use so that I can see my kid from my Android phone?

Thanks for the help.

Yahoo Messenger has both PC and Android apps that support video chat between both platforms.

I use IP Cam Viewer Lite on my Droid 2 to monitor my cat if I'm away for a couple days. Pretty basic but for a live feed of a single camera, it works fine. There's a pro version but the free Lite version suits my needs.

I use ustream.tv, and use my Droid X's web browser to monitor the goings on of my dogs at home during the day. :)

Yawcam is super simple to set up and has a web streaming option that should allow you to watch from your phones browser.
