Hello guys, I have a Nexus 7(2013 16G WIFI), a Logitech webcam C270, a OTG. How can I use the webcam on to Skype on the Nexus?
I followed all the info I could find on the Internet, Youtube, XDA et.. It seems all the tutorials are designed for the old Nexus 7.
I download a camera app, and then rooted the system(tried both 4.4 and 4.3), and then enter in the terminal :
su
ls -l /dev/video0
chmod 666/dev/video0
It doesn't work.
So I enter:
su
dmesg
It says

Does anyone know how to make it work on the 2013 Nexus 7?
Thanks a lot!
