View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to use Sanyo VPC-T700 as pc or web cam

March 7th, 2012, 06:15 PM
I have a Sanyo VPC-T700T that identifies itrself as "0474:0276 Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd" using lsusb on my Thinkpad R61i with 11.10. I have tried almost every webcam and live video application in the Ubuntu software repository, and done hours of searching on the Web and these forums, to find a way to use the 'T700 as a video source. I know this is possible, since it once had a "PC Camera" application for Windows that did that. I have lost the CD on which that came, and checked with Sanyo to find that the CD is no longer available, so running the windows driver under Wine is not possible. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to proceed next?
