MK808 webcam support and skype video chat support

Postby geekbuying » Sat Dec 08, 2012 4:12 am

Hi guys:

Recently we get some information about how to set the webcam work on MK808.

Today i make a test by myself. I use the following two device:

1 USB HUB:
http://www.geekbuying.com/item/High-spe ... 00706.html
2 Webcam:
http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Logitech ... 12647.html
and i run the " camera ICS" app in MK808, in this app, the camera runs well, just like in your tablet or cell phone which build in camera.

and i also run the skype video chat test on those two accessories, also works well.

The camera i use is Logitech C170, it is original and good quality, and then , i change another hub(cheap ones) to test, the camera won't work. I guess, some people report the camera can't work well, it is the problem for their hub.

Hope this information is helpful.

thanks

Can it also works without any usb adapter?
Does it work with some other webcam´s with different chipset´s?
I have a Logitech Quickcam 4000, but i get only the microphone in the Skype app.
Is it possible to use an universal webcam driver on the MK808? Where can i get it?

DOES NOT WORK.

How do you check it?
You must call to another skype!!!

And that you can see an image from the camera in the window
This does not mean that the recipient gets it!!!

microsoft hd 5000 or logitech c510 on it you said that it works. I see stripes only!

The camera works!
mk808 has a mistake in the firmware. Causing the camera will only work on the OTG connector!
But not everyone s skype support full hd.

We created a test program the camera.

Probably all the cameras from the list below should work on connector OTG
And Skype_2.8.0.920 or Skype_2.8.0.920

Only one problem i have.
No connection to the usb lan adapter. After a restart.

My friend has a different lan adapter and there is no problem.
On mk802 II no problem.

I upgraded by MK808 stick with the Finless 1.5a ROM and then my webcam/mic started to work with Skype. Just posted up blog entry.

(The video does not show skype as I have not had time to load this up yet...)

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema I had did NOT work before the upgrade (I have a video on that as well :)) Here's the Skype performance with the Microsoft camera BEFORE the upgrade:

As I said
This is a list of cameras that work with android
http://www.ideasonboard.org/uvc/

life cam cinema have not compatible sound.

Most cameras will only work on OTG port.

Only my tests helped determine this.
Unfortunately, the majority lan> usb adapter also works only on the OTG port.

Of course there are cameras operating on a USB but they are usually low resolution.
Does the camera runs on USB or OTG, we can easily see the camera application.

Making sure that we see the resolution of the camera.

It may be, as in my case.
hd5000
Usb skype does not work. In the application, we have a low resolution camera.
OTG working on skype. In the application, we have a high resolution camera.

Of course it may also be too little energy from usb.
Cam could work on usb. But have not too much energy.

BUT NO ALL CAM WORKS ON USB. Most HD cam only works on OTG

-------------
The best software for mk808 are:

MK808 works with Skype (Video and Audio). I have updated my MK808 with Finless 1.7 ROM (which was published for UG802) and Kizs kernel (kizs_kernel_1.5GHz_1080.img). Logitech USB CAM (Model C110) works perfectly with updated firmware. No issue on Video and audio.

Kizs kernel (working kernel for USB Cam):

Finless Rom:

I have made a post with images at freaktab website for growing community of MK808

Note: FYI.. Skyepe is not working with Kizs Latest published kernel (kizs_kernel_v2_1.5GHz_1080_USBETH+BT.img) for MK808 at my setup

Have had too much time this holiday season so did a novelty video to show the results of some tests with mk808 and Microsoft LifeCam Cinema. Just to be clear the camera and mic workes with the device so the list mentioned earlier may be out of date. Some stability issues but then I expect this with this generation of product for the moment....

It did not work 100%, but is probably good enough for most people!
