    Need to use a webcam with Katkiss.... Is there any way?

    I'm looking to plug a webcam into one of the USB ports on my Transformer keyboard (for use in astronomical imaging), but the camera utility doesn't seem to be working with Katkiss, and Katkiss doesn't seem to recognise the webcam when I plug it in either. Is there any way I can make it work, or do I need to buy a laptop?!?

    I don't think you should be expecting a USB webcam (certified to work with Windows and Mac ) to be able to work on any Android device regardless of custom ROM. Windows computer have generic drivers built in to let the operating system handle external imaging devices. Android does not and doesn't have any framework for you to use external imaging devices.

    Might be worth loaning a laptop from a friend or getting a used one if you normally use desktops for everything.

    If you want a really cheap laptop with a decent build Hp has their stream series for like $250 from the Microsoft store.
