Are there suggestions for a decent app for viewing a USB/OTG-connected UVC webcam, endoscope/borescope?
There are many questionable apps for this available from Play Store but I’m reluctant to install them.
Preferably something on F-Droid, or at least open source, or at the very least not requiring excessive permissions or having privacy/security concerns.
If you are not running Q, I found OTG View running fine.
It has no ads, only one tracker (not Google).
Name : com.dingtai.snakecamera
Exodus report : https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/com.dingtai.snakecamera/latest/
It is provided by a camera manufacturer (TeamForce, TW).
Also working for me is USB Camera, it has no tracker but I found it way too limited.
Name : infinitegra.app.usbcamera
Exodus report : https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/infinitegra.app.usbcamera/latest/
I got both from Google Store using Aurora, I found nothing usable in F-Droid.
Thanks for the suggestions and for including the full app names! There are so many apps with the same or similar names which seem suspect for malware.
USB Camera Standard (infinitegra.app.usbcamera) seems ok for basic functionality, but I can’t find a way to change resolution. It seems stuck on 480p.
OTG View (com.dingtai.snakecamera) is much nicer and allows choosing the resolution. The downside is the much expanded permissions list and a tracker (a push notification service?).
These look like decent solutions. I got them via Aurora too. It’s too bad more privacy-friendly options don’t seem to exist in F-Droid.
