Webcam that is supported by VH?

I just picked up a ov9281 but I don't think it works with VH? I can connect my logitech 300 or whatever it is but while my ov9281 connects also, it doesn't send any video stream.

Anyone know of any 100 or higher fps cam that will work with vh?



What is the server type you are running virtualhere on? Linux? Pi? etc


I was running on windows to try. Thought about buying a pi to run it but don't want to waste >150 if it turns out the webcam doesn't work


OK windows is not a good OS for a usb server so i dont think you will get the webcam working well at that fps.


Is pi better then? I just ordered a pi4 haha so hopefully it is!


Tried raising usbfs to 100, 1500, 2048.

LOG when error happens ` usb 1- reset high-speed USB device number 7 uing xhci_hcd `


The is not an error. However can you right click on the camera and select Custom Event... and copy exactly this in


Then press ok and try again. If it still fails try this

1. Stop and exit the virtualhere server process
2. Edit config.ini on the server and add the line


3. Save the config.ini file and start the server again
4. Unplug/replug the camera then try to use it via virtualhere


What exact model is it?


Ive ordered the first one you linked to, getting it on the 5th Sept. Ill investigate more then...


Wow thanks


OK received the OV9281. I got it working but it only handles 320x240x120fps. Any higher resolution and the actual firmware inside the camera crashes. Their firmware is very delicate and it wont handle even just a small latency increase in the USB transfer so i wouldn't recommend this camera via virtualhere.


dam ok thanks


I think this problem might fixed with the latest virtualhere client 5.4.2. Could you give it a try?


Download and run the virtualhere client from here


I have a Logitech BRIO when I pass the device to the remote machine it recognizes the device but it only outputs a black video feed. The camera is turned on because the notification light that indicates the camera is in use turns on.

I am using virtualhere client 5.4.2 and virtualhere server 4.4.7

You need to be using it over a LAN not over the internet. Also try turning down the resolution in your webcam software on the client side. The latency might be too high to support high-resolution.


My network topology is such that everything is connected via LAN however occasionally my surface pro will connect to the wifi instead.

I tried using the webcam again and lowering the resolution via settings. I did it via the host machine and the remote machine and it still comes through blank

Screenshot of camera settings app (Notice the blank image above the preview text on the upper right side)

Adjusting the camera settings on the host machine side works fine, when I do it on the the remote side the settings save but the image remains blank


The windows store version works perfectly, I can even use the camera at full 1080p 30fps


ok very interesting, thanks for letting me know
