There may be such software, but I don't know what it is. You would need some software on the phone to make it act like a USB webcam for the computer OS, and depending what device it emulates, you may or may not need to install driver software on the computer. Myself, I just get a small USB webcam that works with my laptop on Ubuntu, and go with that.
