hey guys, 10.5.8 question? android as webcam.

I have a mac mini on 10.5.8. and i wanna run a certain webcam windows app. But i only got 2gb of hdd space to work with. This is non-negotiable. Anyone know of an app tbat does what droidcamx does, but runs on 10.5.8? Or a way to install the windows client with only minuscule  space?

Better question is what aspect of DroidCamX do you want to use? If it's just taking stills off, it seems like you can just access it with a web browser.
