wctek xyzhub usb camera instructions and setup
#1
Hi wctek won't respond to my request for information on how to setup and configure a usb printer on their xyzhub. I have tried 3-4 different usb cameras that all work locally to system. When I plug in the camera and go to xyzhub and try to view it redirects to ip:8080 but no video on any camera I have tried. I am guessing my xyzhub recently purchased is missing a config file. The readme doesn't include any information on the camera. The xyzhub works for printer functions as stated. Does anyone have any info on configuration for a camera on an xyzhub?

I can't buy from a company that won't respond to request for info after I already purchased from them. I am just asking for config file info. Does your readme indicate anything about the camera? They make a profit providing hacks to make the Davinci more open but aren't willing to provide an open product.

well the information you request they sell it : An unlimited device licence is also available from the developer's website at a very low cost (information on how to do this is included within the XYZHUB documentation).
So of course they won't give it for free.

Now you can try to check what is their camera and then deduct what camera is working and so what change could be necessary to make another one working because config file is one thing, but you also may need additional drivers for kernel

Thanks for the reply Schwerer Gustav. I haven't received any reply from Wctek with multiple attempts in several months. Was your plug and play when you got the camera they provide or did you get some updated files? As I said in my first post no mention of camera setup is mentioned in the readme or the doco sent with hub so wondered if any existed or someone figure out how to use another usb camera? I did configure another R-pi with fswebcam and two of the cameras worked fine after setting the correct resolution. I just didn't want to dedicate a R-pi to the camera when the XYZHub was already connected. I don't think it is a license issue as luc indicated as I have tried it with only the camera connected.
