Introduction

Webcams have proved difficult to support on the Portsdown as manufacturers spend a lot of effort in developing Windows drivers (for their major market), but very little effort in developing Linux drivers as it does not bring them much revenue.

The recommended WebCam is the Logitech C920, but this has 3 versions with identical external hardware, but different elctronics and drivers. Only the oldest version is supported by the Portsdown 2020, but all 3 versions are supported by the Portsdown 4.
