New USB webcams tested on Solaris
By colin on Sep 27, 2007
I received five Logitech webcams weeks ago. They are all new models, very fancy. I then had a quick test on Solaris Express. Four of them work well with Ekiga application integrated in Solaris, just plug and play. One of them can not work, the reason is that it does not conform to USB video class spec from usb.org, it needs chip specific driver. The other four webcams passed more tests later. I have updated one of my previous blog to add the names of them to a device list which tells all the tested webcams on Solaris video class driver (usbvc(7D)).
Device Name Vendor ID, Product ID
Logitech Quickcam Pro for Notebooks 046d,0991
Logitech Quickcam Deluxe for notebooks 046d,09c1
Logitech Quickcam Communicate Deluxe 046d,0992
Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 046d,0990
So far, there are about 9 or more webcams are supported by Solaris video class driver (usbvc(7D)). Again, for a full device list, please refer to my updated blog for USB video webcams and applications.
