Use USB camera\webcam on Android TeamViewer Pilot App

Hi,

I know (and I've also tested it) that it is possible to connect an external USB Webcam to my Android device (Samsung Galaxy S7) via OTG. Now I wonder if it is possible to use this external camera on TeamViewer Pilot instead of the phones build-in camera.

Thank you!

Re: Use USB camera\webcam on Android TeamViewer Pilot App

Hi,

we are using ARCore for the tracking of the device. It is using the camera feed and the motion sensor of the device for the tracking. If you only have a camera without that sensor I don't think it is working. To be honest I havn't tried it, but I think it is always trying to use the camera of the device.
