DroidCam – Webcam for PC – Apps on Google Play

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/21

Since most phones still have better cameras than most laptops, this is on my list of things to try:

Android app: [Wayback/Archive] DroidCam – Webcam for PC – Apps on Google Play (there is also an iOS app, but I don’t use iOS devices)

Client software for Windows and Linux:  [Wayback/Archive] Dev47Apps

DroidCam turns your phone/tablet into a webcam for your PC.
Use it with chat programs like Zoom, MS Teams, and Skype.

Main Features:
– Chat using “DroidCam Webcam” on your computer, including Sound and Picture.
– Connect over WiFi or USB cable.
– Unlimited free usage at standard definition.
– Keep using your phone with DroidCam in background (Android).
– Simple, safe, efficient, and trusted by millions of people worldwide.

DroidCamX Pro Features:
– Switch to HD Mode for 720p/1080p high definition video.
– Camera controls: toggle light, enable continuous auto focus, zoom in/out.
– Rotate, Flip & Mirror the video to better match your setup.
– Adjust brightness, contrast, add video delay and adjust audio volume (Windows).
– USB-Only mode for extra privacy and security.
– Option to auto-mute phone calls.
– No Ads.

I am really curious how they did this on the software side: developing and signing drivers; low-latency communications protocol, etc.

GitHub – dschmenk/apple2pi: Apple II client/server for Raspberry Pi

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/05/28

[WayBack] GitHub – dschmenk/apple2pi: Apple II client/server for Raspberry Pi: hybrid computer of a Raspberry Pi inside an Apple II (either ][, or ][+, or //e) so the Apple II can be a front-end to the Raspberry Pi which then can run an Apple IIGS emulator, talk to the Apple II storage hardware and much more.

It can run [WayBack] RASPPLE II: A2CLOUD, A2SERVER, Apple II Pi for Raspberry Pi

Going to test some USB 3 gigabit ethernet adapters based on Realtek RTL8153 and Asix AX88179 chips

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/27

Later on, I might add a USB31000S in the mix, but I will do some initial testing with USB 3 gigabit ethernet adapters based on Realtek RTL8153 and Asix AX88179 chips.

Things I will focus on with my Retina MacBook Pro 2015 model are:

  • CPU usage
  • Throughput
  • Duration between reconnect on USB after suspend, and renewing the DHCP lease
  • Promiscuous mode capabilities

Some links for my references:

A first impression from the above links is that for Realtek chipset based devices, drivers are more readily included in operating systems, and these chipsets are better at VLAN handling.
