External USB cam not found on Andorid device

May 20, 2020 - 12:19pm #1

Unity 3D / 2018.4.23f1

My external usb webcam is recognized on Win PC after I added a "<webcam ...> ... </webcam>" node in "webcamprofiles.xml".

But it is not after deploying to an Android device and while the same USB webcam connected to the Android device via an adapter.

 

How to fix this?

Supports "webcamprofiles.xml" "only" <windows> and <osx>?

Hi,

The webcamprofiles are intended to be used only for Play Mode in Unity.

In order for the usb camera to be recognized by the phone you will need to create a custom driver using our External camera feature. https://library.vuforia.com/content/vuforia-library/en/articles/Solution/external-camera.html

Please note that we also have an article with samples walking you through the entire process: https://library.vuforia.com/content/vuforia-library/en/articles/Solution/uvc-camera-driver.html

Thank you.
