  • Allwinner V3 action camera, PC uvc webcam camera streaming record capture using Linux Mint or Ubuntu

    My generic RICH F60 Allwinner V3 camera (link - click here) works as a PC uvc webcam in Linux Mint 19 or Ubuntu 19. Just install some applications as described in this text file https://glot.io/snippets/fdn5tlm1oc/...usage-help.txt , power on the camera first, disable camera screen saver, connect the camera to usb 2.0 or 3.0 port, select "PC Camera", and start the webcam application "guvcview" https://w.wiki/5SZ or another such as "cheese" on the computer. Notice that this webcam device might be "/dev/video0" or "/dev/video1" depending on how many cameras are simultaneously connected. There are also many other webcam applications and tools under "Software Manager' and "Synaptic Package Manager".

    At first it wasn't working, so I tried different USB cables and different USB ports on the computer. Also, when using the "guvcview" application, the default setting makes the video come out green. So just change the "Camera Output" setting to RGB3 or another. You can also change the capture codec to MJPG, h264 and others. Maybe restarting Linux may help for troubleshooting.

    Here is more technical info dumped by "dmesg -w" command in a terminal - https://glot.io/snippets/fdn5tlm1oc/...esg-output.txt
