I am trying to use an external USB webcam with my dragonboard410C running Android 5.1

This is what I have been able to do so far.

  1. Build OpneCV 3.0 Android on my Windows machine
  2. Build and deploy camera preview sample on the board. I had to change the sample target from Androd v 11 to 22.
  3. But whenever I try to run the sample I get the error that "It seems that your device does not support camera(or it is locked)"

I did some searching and there have been several solutions proposed online 1. The Android Manifest file does have this line "<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA"/>" 2. The sample app does have permission enabled for camera access

By the way, I could get the camera working on this board with a third party app. So nothing wrong with the camera.

Any tips and help appreciated.
