Webcam on Hub One USB port

According to a single website the USB port on the Hub One can be used to share a webcam. I was doubtful that this would be the case, but when plugging a camera in, it seems to be being advertised and is listed on a camera finder app on an android phone. It doesn't seem to get any further than the listing though, so no picture can be viewed.


Has anyone else had any success in getting this to work, or is it basically a pipe dream?

Hi matthews,

Unfortunately it is just a pipe dream. The camera will have shown up because the USB port will have just acted as a power source to switch it on, same as if you were to plug your phone charger into it as well.
