    I am using a Minix NEO X8-H Plus for the 1st time and wonder would it be possible to use my redundant
    Samsung Webcam VG-STC 2000 with an appropriate driver.
    Bought this webcam like many thousands of others to use on Skype via A Samsung Smart (?) Tv only to find it useless as Skype was discontinued on the TV .
    So would really like to use it via my Minix box for Skype.

    Has Anyone done this _ A log shot I know.

    Thanks in advance for any advice even if its "You Must Be Joking"

    Have you tried plugging it in to the X8-H Plus?

    Villa Thank you for your reply. Yes I have tried the camera via its USB connection. It is not recognised. Ive also tried a Logitech Camera/Mic and that one is recognised and it places a Camera Icon on the main screen with all the loaded apps and it works well on Skype via the X8, its just that I would have liked to put the Samsung camera to use as it was quite expensive and is good quality output.

    Try plugging it in then reboot may work

    Tried a reboot a couple of times without success. The Blue power light within the camera illuminates but no Camera icon and no Camera to select in Skype. .... Shame.

    The camera has probably got some form of blocking software installed preventing its user from using the camera in any other equipment apart from Samsung not so smart tv,
