Working cameras on Raspberry RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    did anyone have any luck getting a picture (or video) from a camera on Raspberry PI? I have tried the Media capture sample, with three cameras:

    1) the Raspberry's camera plugged into the CAMERA connector
    2) cheap no-name USB camera
    3) Logitech C920 HD (USB)

    The first two obviously do not work. The third one makes the built-in microphone available, but no photo/video devices.

    Any working ones? Or is the camera capture supposed to work on the 10069 release?

    Thanks,
    Jan

  • The product group have confirmed that there are no supported USB WebCams on the Pi right now. They are currently in the process of porting the drivers to ARM. Unfortunately this is the state of the USB Wi-Fi drivers also. Hopefully we will see them soon.

  • Hi Jan,

      If you notice in the release notes they call out that some webcams are still not working:

    6. Some Webcam drivers are missing. (2187095). WORKAROUND: None

      Also the USB peripheral list doesn’t have any webcams listed (Yet):

      Hopefully support will be there soon.

  • Hi,

    For the RTM build, we have some folks reporting that the Raspberry Pi 2 + Win 10 works with Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000
