I had to try a few things to make this work, so to save others some time, here's what I did -
The camera part - "IP Webcam" running on an android phone. Freeware. https://market.android.com/details?i...cy53ZWJjYW0iXQ..
You can save the page displaying the video for future ease of access using the "add to Launcher" option in the Touchpad browser, or just bookmark it of course.
Caveats - frame rate may be pretty low and audio is not in sync, but for basic monitoring purposes eg baby alarm, it's not bad for free.
Other such solutions I tried (obviously not all possible ones) would not work with the Touchpad browser at all. Hence the reason for posting this little solution.
