    Welcome to the forum.Glad you decided to join us. Not sure if it's been tried, you would need and OTG cable for the connection. You could be the first.

    I don't think so, unless there's an app for that but I know you can connect the Xoom with a computer and use the Xoom's webcam (kinda opposite lol)

    I have a android pad without brand from our supplier, it can connect uvc camera, but it's unstable and the LCD screen is terrible. I think they did some modification in kernel, adding uvc support or something. but i want my application running on other android devices.


    thank you for ur replies, i have got my xoom and ordered an otg cable, i will try it even it's impossible

    with bigrushdogs kernel modules I can get a web cam to make a device, but without a app or mencoder to dump into a file...
    also frame size issues.
    in my searches I was surprised to see so many who want this.

    Try IP Webcam and tinycam monitor. Just use your phone as the webcam andthe Xoom as the monitor. You will need to be on the same wifi. idont know if this will help. you dont need to be online, just bring in an old wifi router and have both of them on the same network.
