So, it’s clear that many Android phones lack support for USB host mode. It’s possible that OEMs will include the feature in future software updates, but until then, those who want to hook up USB accessories to their unsupported Android devices will have to root.

Hi I am looking to connect a usb camera to an android phone I have access to a Galaxy note 1 and a Sony Xperia L, I can power up a USB memory stick with the Note, but not with the Sony, so I guess the note will be the best option for my project, my phone is not rooted.. is it possible without a rooted phone ? any pointers where to start and if anyone knows of some example projects.. thanks

Eiji Hitori So for some reason it worked for about two weeks after the last android update it stopped working. I have chatted with the company and they have yet to fix it. The app camera doesn’t open for any reason. The audio seems to be recognized and the led lights come on but no camera. So since this was a waste of money for me and the fact that the developers didn’t fix the issue. This will be a one star app and product. I don’t recommend it. Tim Dawson Does not work with Samsung S8 software James Morgan Works but too many ads block part of screen ChrisandJaime Cooper Doesnt work Gaurav Mehta Awesome and easy to access love it cos it’s soo simple and nice Kathleen Lyle Bought a usb microscope, that can new used on my phone as well.

Have tried a few apps on my note 2 phone to get an endoscope to work, but none did, not even the software that came with the camera, all apps recognized the device, but none put an image on the screen. Put this app on my partners note 4 phone, usb camera works fine, go figure! Full Review

Kevin Beverage June 7, 2016 Works on tablet but not on phone I installed this app to use a USB microscope I had recently purchased. It works and recognizes the microscope just fine on my Samsung Tab Pro tablet but will not recognize the scope on my Nexus 6, possibly because I am running the Android N beta on it. If it worked on both devices it would have rated 4 or 5 stars. Full Review

For most people a video call such as MSN or Skype, Google+ hangout or a video chat is something occasional. And when you want to start one, you need a webcam. But why spend money for a separate webcam when you can easily use your android phone’s camera as a webcam?

Shawn Taylor December 12, 2016 Installed this app (LG Nexus 5 running Android 6) and it worked instantly. I haven’t had time to fiddle with all of the features but I am rewiring my house and only need to see behind the walls. I’m using a General Tools DS050 inspection camera (no built in display) that I bought on a good sale and I didnt want to hold a laptop in one hand, while standing on a ladder, and manouvering the scope with the other hand. I just snapped the belt clip to the base of the wand and Bob’s your uncle. I’d give it 5 stars but I need to see the rest of it work first. Full Review

UPDATE:I decided to try the DroidCam solution and it turned out to be a good choice. It took a  few minutes to load and configure the options but I followed the direction above and it seems to connect via USB and sticks to the DroidCam selection in the settings with no problem. I did not invite any one for a Hangout, but will be trying it with some of my students in a few days. If you have any luck with it, please hit me up. I’m curious if this works as well for others as it has, so far for me.

8) Cheaper Android devices struggle to live stream from high resolution cameras, many times frame rates drop to single digits. Some devices even fail to come up in the first few seconds, it has to do with cheaper hardware specs.

Windows – For windows, the driver comes as an easy installer.Linux – For Linux, it comes as a script which you need to run in a terminal as root. Before running, change the value of the variable “WIFI_IP=” to the ip address from IP Webcam in the script. Make sure the computer is connected to the Internet when you run the script the first time. It will try to download and install additional files if your linux doesn’t already have them. You need to run this script every time you want to use your android as webcam.

Instead of an FAQ, if you can’t get the library to work, try one of these suggestions. Unfortunately video is fairly non-standard across Android OS builds and web cams, so I can’t provide very good support.
