    We have an application that would require a USB WebCam to be connected and delivering video. It would then connect to an app that would supply a one-way video conferencing capability so that the remote user can see what the camera sees. I understand that there are already two cameras on the device, but the application requires a tethered camera. (e.g. the camera would be worn, the tablet would probably be in a backpack).

    Has anyone tried WebCams with success or failure on this tablet? Success or failure with particular brands/models?

    Thanks.

    Anyone have experience getting a Tablet to run a Webcam? Did you need to modify the standard OS load?

    I understand that there are already cameras on most devices, but the application requires a tethered camera. (e.g. the camera would be worn, the tablet would probably be in a backpack). Battery life matters, but is secondary to getting it to work initially.

    It seems that some devices are coming out with full capability USB ports, but perhaps the OS configuration is limiting?
