Description Curtis Villamizar 2018-04-13 18:34:31 UTC
Building using crochet produces a viable build for either Orange Pi or Raspberry Pi.

On Orange Pi I have two USB cameras that work on Orange Pi PC Plus (OPiPC+) but fail on Raspberry Pi 3 (RPi3).

The cameras are vendor 0x0471 product 0x0329 (an old Philips webcam) and a ELP-USB100W05MT-DL36 which usbconfig reports as "HD Camera Manufacturer USB 2.0 Camera".  They have both been tested with the webcamd and the multimedia/motion port and work on OPiPC+.  I can use either or both at the same time.

On the RPi3 both hang with no input received on /dev/video0 or /dev/video1 for a while but every now and then get a scrambled frame.

One hint may be that the OPiPC+ is a arm64 build while RPi3 is aarch64 and therefore the bug may be in compiling the USB subsystem rather than any port.
