USB PHY2.0 Webcam Driver

Hi guys! I bought a low cost USB webcam but I can’t have video stream on qgroundcontrol. Companion detects my camera as a video device but I can’t select my camera on companion web interface. Should I download a driver or is there any possible solutions.

Hi @Rovaddict,

Companion’s built in video streaming is only set up to stream H264-encoded video, and QGroundControl is only set up to receive H264 or H265 encoded video. Most likely your camera doesn’t provide a H264-encoded output stream option, so Companion can’t stream it, and QGC wouldn’t be able to receive it.

These threads may be worth having a read of:

Thanks for your reply. I worked on hard two years ago your reply helps me to solve this problem. Thank you again :blush:!
