It appears that these USB webcams basically are totally different than like a camera on a cell phone. I wish there was a better app too, as CarRecord is extremely basic!

I also got the same Chinese camera from aliexpres
Yesterday I managed to make DailyRoads Voyager to work. I downloaded the MTC apps uncompiled sources from this forum, and I studied the MTC Travel (Car Record) app sources, to look for clues on settings I need to set to DailyRoads Voyager, and I found them!
You need to set in "Settings -> Video" the next values:
- Video Quality: choose Custom
- Video Resolution: choose 640 x 480
- Video Encoder: H.264
- Bitrate: Medium or High
- Frame Rate: High (30fps) (This is what it makes it work finally, as by default is medium selected, and CarRecord has it at 100fps)
- File format: mp4
I also change the settings in File storage, to save the videos on USB Storage (i don't know if this affects the recording), as I have a 120GB SSD.
Hope this will help anybody which has a camera attached to this HU.
