would like to get one but a linux newbie and having trouble figuring out if any are ported...
i've found lots of things that link to freedesktop.org DisplayLink Wiki - FrontPage but haven't found any specific mentions of any of these video capture devices.
"porting" isn't quite the right word. That implies having access to some other source code to base things off of, and that's almost never the case for hardware drivers. They generally have to write linux drivers from scratch based on device specifications, which manufacturers are often loath to provide. So a lack of a driver doesn't mean "not ported yet", but often means "no specifications available for anyone to even try to make a driver".
Nitpicking aside, it might be better to see what drivers linux has than to randomly google USB hardware. Linux drivers usually list chipsets, not models, since many different things ultimately use the same or similar chipsets hence drivers.
Here's the USB devices the 2.6.27 kernel has available:
Highlighted the interesting-looking ones...
UVC is a generic driver that supports most any video device with the UVC device class.
The Hauppage driver is pretty obvious in what devices it's for.

I need a broad spectrum understanding on this subject, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
First of all, as I understand it...
The way the video hardware works is the CPU sends information about input and possible changes to the display, the video card receives these changes, makes the... (2 Replies)
Am working on an embedded device with a camera and I would want to send the video data it streams to a usb device connected to it. Am using the c language and of course Linux (Fedora).
Any help and suggestions are most welcomed.
